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.

DCB U15 Girls v Lancashire

Derbyshire u15 girls opened their season at Glossop Cricket Club this week against a strong Lancashire squad containing 5 England squad players.

Captain Alice Dyson won the toss on her home ground and asked Lancashire to bat who made steady progress on a good wicket against some good opening bowling from Ashleigh Keable and Alice. Lancashire put on a first wicket stand of 76 before Francesca Moore made the breakthrough.

Derbyshire had the luxury of having three leg spin bowlers Sarah Glenn, Gabrielle Barlow and Olivia Fletcher and all bowled very well taking wickets. Olivia took three wickets for 34 runs off 7 overs. Derbyshire fielded well towards the end of the innings with Sarah taking two wonderful catches and Paige Beresford setting the standards and were very happy to restrict Lancashire to 177 in their 40 overs. The wicketkeeping was shared between Megan Pittman and Bess Heath who both were excellent with only 2 byes between them. We did bowl a few wides, but the umpires were tight and something to work on for the next game.

Derbyshire started steadily against some good opening bowling Eleanor out to a very sharp stumping and Megan defending against accurate spin. Sophie Doherty was unluckily bowled with an excellent ball and Sarah was batting very well keeping the score ticking along. After 22 overs we were 56 for 4 and lancs on top. Alice joined Sarah and both batted well putting on a stand of 42 in quick time before Sarah was out for 51 batting for nearly 2 hours. Derbyshire finished on 120 for 8 with Holly Bacon batting lower down due to an injury and Alice finishing on an unbeaten 23.

A good start against a very strong team

DCB U15 Girls v Cheshire

Cheshire batted first and there was good attacking bowling from Macey Logan and Alice Dyson. Alice took a wicket, a good catch by Eleanor Cheatle leaving Cheshire at 13 for 1 after 8 overs. Steady batting by Cheshire gradually accelerated the score. Miranda Marshall captaining for only the second time showed great maturity and regularly rotated the bowling to good effect. Georgie Harrison bowled a good line beating the bat and Lucy Renwick likewise. Megan Pittman again put in a very good display behind the stumps.

Result: Derbyshire 92/8 in 40 overs lost to Lancashire 225/2 in 40 overs (Eleanor Cheatle 48) by 133 runs

Derbyshire U15 Girls opened the season at Glossop CC against a very strong Lancashire side that had several England performance players playing. Captain Miranda Marshall put Lancashire in to bat and they had 64 before the first wicket, which was a great run out by Lauren Tuffrey. Macey Logan and Alice Dyson bowled reasonably well early on and Georgie Harrison bowled a good tight spell.  Lucy Renwick on her debut and Beth Harwood put in decent spells. However wickets were hard to come by.

U15 Girls vs Lancashire

Macey clean bowled the opener, then Emma Lamb accelerated quickly, the bowlers bowled decent spells but not helped by the very good wicket and fast outfield. Emma finished on a superb 108 not out and Lancashire 225/2.
