Felsted School’s U15 girls’ cricket team are through to the National Final of the T20 Cricket Cup after two great performances in their quarter and semi-final games.
Felsted beat New Hall in the county round and Kent College Canterbury (140 runs to 99) in the National Quarter Final, before a nail biting match against Hurstpierpoint College, where they won by just one run in their 15th over to take them through to the National Finals Day.
This is the second national triumph for Felsted girls’ cricket this season, following on from the U15 Lady Taverners Indoor Cup win at Lord’s.
Super League Cricketer and Felsted Girls’ Cricket coach, Carla Rudd comments; “I am very proud of the girls reaching their second national final of the season. The girls have trained hard over the past few months and I am glad their dedication has paid off.”
Beth Irvine (Yr 9) has also made Felsted cricketing history as the first girl to score a century. As well as playing for the Felsted U15 girls’ team, Beth is also in the Essex Development Squad.
Felsted is currently nominated as an Inspirational School for girls’ cricket by Essex CCC and became a MCCF (Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation) hub for girls’ cricket in November 2015.
