Rolleston-on-Dove was the venue for Derbyshire U15 girl`s v Yorkshire U15 girl`s on Tuesday 12th July. Although there was light rain in the air, the match was able to start on time with Yorkshire batting first. The visitors were 84/1 at the drinks interval after 20 overs, playing positively with bat on ball and looking for singles in all areas of the ground. Molly Dythan and Lucy Yates were bowling well to try and reduce the strike rate of the Yorkshire top order. After 32 overs, the Yorkshire girls were on 161/3 with their opener being caught out in the deep just short of 100 whilst trying to hit the ball for a maximum over the rope.

The clouds opened up and the umpires were forced to pause play and the decision for the players to have an early tea was agreed. After tea, Derbyshire bowled well and Yorkshire were looking to score quickly with their 8 overs remaining. The visitors finished their overs, posting a score of 216.

After a 10 minute interval, it was Derbyshire`s turn to work the ball into areas of the ground against a strong Yorkshire bowling attack. Unfortunately their plan of quick singles and not giving any wickets away was interrupted in the first over as the Derbyshire opener was bowled by Yorkshire`s opening off-spinner. A tight bowling line from Yorkshire made it hard for the Derbyshire batters to find bat on ball, which increased their run rate. A few big shots and quick runs from Derbyshire`s middle order made the run chase look possible but after another couple of wickets lost, this became a harder task to complete.

After consistent bowling from Yorkshire, Derbyshire were bowled out for 121, with the visitors from across the border ensuring that their unbeaten streak and reputation was not interrupted.

Although Derbyshire were defeated, the girls are feeling positive about some aspects of the game and the positives that they can bring from performing well against a strong Yorkshire side, as well as the great opportunities that lie ahead of them.

The opportunity for girls cricket is growing and this is something that Derbyshire Cricket Board are working hard to execute with the Women`s World Cup being held at the 3aaa County Ground next year.

Lucy Yates, Derbyshire U15 Girls captain and Senior player says- “Enjoy every opportunity, every day the sport is increasing with more people taking part and knowing about it, take all of the opportunities that are available to take part in girl`s cricket.”

Rachel Hopkins, Women`s Team Vice Captain and Cricket Development Coach- “The Women and Girl`s game is massive, the generation are looking to push on and it`s a great time for the sport. I am trying to influence the girl`s to get involved through school activities and the DCB programmes.

The support that the DCB are receiving from the girls is fantastic and with Derbyshire being a host city for the Women`s World Cup 2017 there are many exciting opportunities ahead. The girl`s programmes that are available is a great opportunity to have a taste of cricket and to get involved in such a great sport that is growing each day.

The girls played in the very strong performance league which included Yorkshire who were eventual national champions and Lancashire who are always very strong. We stood up well against these and had four good close games against Notts and Cheshire.
There were many individual performances to be proud of from the squad of 15 players with all players playing a part together with several from the under 13's.
The triple captaincy team of Alice Dyson, Sarah Glenn and Megan Pittman worked very well, the girls sharing duties, encouraging the younger players and building a great team spirit.
The first game at Glossop v Lancs was a positive start with Sarah scoring a great 50. Against Notts we had a close game with Holly Bacon and Sarah putting on 80 for the first wicket, Sarah scoring a wonderful 86.
Yorkshire scored 200 despite some good bowling and we struggled batting scoring 62 with only Olivia Fletcher and Alice showing any resistance. At home we went from 12 f 4 to 54 f 4, then 54ao only Megan with 39 ( 73% of the runs ! ) performing. We took 4 quick wickets which worried Yorkshire
Cheshire away Sarah scored a quick 45, then a flurry of wickets left us 82 for 5. Sensible batting using the overs lead us to 162 with Alice 32no. We then had a poor start all round in the field, Cheshire being 51 for 1 after 8 overs, however, a good effort made Cheshire work hard for the runs.
Sarah and Holly opened well against Lancashire, but when Sarah was out for 38 the innings subsided to 91 all out, although Sophie Doherty batted well. We bowled very well, with no luck at all.

The last game v Cheshire was a wonderful game of cricket, highlights being Lauren Nuttys and Alice's partnership that rescued us batting, Isabelle Pridmore always having the knack of getting wickets when we needed them and an inspired spell of bowling from Sophie taking 4 wickets for 6 runs of 6 overs.
