U11 Girls and U12 Girls Development in Staffordshire

 

logo

U11s

It was decided that we would tackle a 2 innings game, with a maximum of 30 overs per side over the 2 innings, for the U11s first game of the season. Captain Maria Andrews lost the toss and we were put into bat first. After a good display of bowling from the Staffordshire seamers, our top order tumbled quickly with some good spinners undoing our lower order. Derbyshire stumbled to 43 all out in their first innings, Sophia McCollum (9) top scoring.

Staffs batting out their allotted 30 overs within their first innings reaching 115 for 5, with some good bowling from Rachel Parr (1-9), Maria Andrews (1-13), Sophia McCollum (1-11), and Gemma Przybylko (0-7). However, extras (37) were the biggest downfall which helped Staffs to reach their score.

For our second innings, we required 56 runs to pass the score set by Staffs, however we fell short scoring 47-9. Taking our total up 90, falling 25 runs short. There was some good batting from Gemma Przybylko (10) and Maria Andrews (13) putting on 25 runs for the first wicket. Spirits were high despite the loss with the team enjoying each other’s company throughout the day, hoping to build on these experiences for the future games.

U12 Development

For this team, it was decided that we would play two 15 over games. Captain Heidi Marriot won the toss and decided to bowl first. Some determination from the Staffs batters saw them reach 90 for 2, with 21 of the runs scored coming from extras. Abi Jordan (1-5) and Amelie Clarkson (1-9) were the pick of the bowlers taking the only 2 wickets of the game, with some tidy bowling from Heidi Marriot (0-11) and Vice-Captain Emma Hand (0-7) in support.

It was then Derbyshire’s turn to bat, with Heidi Marriot (5*) and Elsey Underdown (4*) opening the batting putting in a good stand until Elsey retired hurt. Under the fire of some good Staffs bowling, we struggled to score runs, reaching 48 for 4 off the 15 overs. Emma Hand (5) and Hollie Mayfield (4) were the next top scorers, with extra top scoring on 29.

For the second game, Staffordshire again batted first and we managed to restrict them to 60 for 2. Hollie Mayfield (1-11), Abi Jordan (0-7), and Heidi Marriot (0-6) were the pick of the bowlers with Heidi Marriot getting a run out for the other wicket with an excellent throw to the keeper from mid-wicket. Extras were our downfall in this game, top scoring with 32.

Ava Ford (0) and Hollie Mayfield (3) opened the batting for us, however we struggled to score runs yet again. Emily Ford (6) top scored with a useful innings from Amelie Clarkson (5) to back her up. We finished on 51 all out off 12.2 overs falling short by just 10 runs. For most of these girls it was their first time playing county level cricket, so it was pleasing to see them giving it their all throughout the day regardless of the scores. We are looking forward to watching the team grow throughout the remainder of our games and seeing them progress.

Derbyshire U11 Boys v Shropshire U11 Boys

Two 20 over matches were played in varying weather conditions ranging from rain to brilliant bright sunshine at Etwall CC on Tuesday 28th May 2019.

Match 1:


Shropshire won the toss and elected to bowl.
Clarke & Dawson put on 38 for the first wicket before Dawson departed for 25 which brought Dent to the crease. Another solid partnership ended when Clarke was dismissed with the score on 68.
Jones joined Dent and the two of them shared a partnership of of 62 before Jones went for 23.
Dent saw the innings out carrying his bat for a sharp, crisp, chance less innings of 69 out of 167-4 against some very good Shropshire bowling.

The Derbyshire bowlers then set about the task and tight bowling coupled with some very fine fielding resulted in Shropshire being dismissed for 74. All the bowlers took a wicket each with Siddall, Kelly & Dawson taking 2 a-piece, Siddall being the pick of the bowlers returning figures of 2 for 7.

Match 2:


Shropshire won the toss again and on this occasion elected to bat.
The Derbyshire opening bowling partnership of Hurst and Siddall coupled with some excellent fielding had Shropshire reeling at 12 for 4. However a fine partnership of 65 between Jeffries and Cornwall turned the tie in Shropshire’s favour with Jeffries reaching his 50 with nicely timed six over mid wicket.
When Jeffries was out for 62, Potter continued onwards with 16 very valuable runs enabling Shropshire to attain 116 for 7 wickets in their allotted overs.
Pick of the bowlers was Dawson with 3-22 and Siddall with 2-7.

Derbyshire’s reply was measured against some very good tight Shropshire bowling.
Fry and Kelly both made double figures before they departed leaving Cokayne with 27 and Dawson on 37 not out to see Derbyshire over the line at 117 for 5 in the 18th over.

Congratulations to George Siddall, Jimmy Fry and Nikhil Davies on making their Derbyshire debuts and putting in some fine performances.

Some scintillating cricket played by two very good teams within the spirit of the game and a big thank you to Jon Salisbury and Adam Hitchcock for umpiring the two matches.

The second Women’s Softball Event of the summer took place at Charlesworth and Chisworth CC on Sunday 9th June. Upon arrival at the ground all players over the age of 18 were offered prosecco, starting the day off the right way!

There were 34 women in attendance on the day, making up 4 teams; Charlesworth and Chisworth CC, Hayfield CC, New Mills CC, and Broadbottom CC. For many of these women it was the first time that they have played any form of cricket, but all involved were enthusiastic and ready to go.

Each team played 3 games each, playing each other once throughout the day. Broadbottom CC came out on top playing some good cricket, winning all 3 of their games. Everyone else played some great cricket and got stuck in. A lovely lunch was provided at the club and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. After lunch we were hit by some rain but everyone battled through to get the games in.

We want to say a huge thankyou to everyone at Charlesworth and Chisworth CC for hosting a brilliant day of cricket and we hope to see you all at another festival in the near future.

Sunday 2nd June saw the first Women’s Softball Festival of the summer take place at Queens Park, the home of Chesterfield CC.

We had a resounding 40 women turn up on the day, making up 6 teams from; Shipley CC, Matlock CC, the ‘Maiden Bowlers’, Belper Meadows CC, and 2 teams from Chesterfield CC. For many of these women, it was the first time that they had played any form of cricket but they were all up for the challenge.

Despite having to battle with the rain, each team managed to play 3 games each throughout the day. No team went unbeaten throughout the duration of the day, but clear improvement was shown by all as the games went on with some highly competitive games taking place. It was great to see the enthusiasm shown by all despite the weather, hopefully we will see these women playing again in the near future at another festival.

We want to say a massive thankyou to Chesterfield CC for hosting the day, and to David Bacon and Bob Sargeant for umpiring the games on the day too. Onto our next festival on Sunday 9th June at Charlesworth and Chisworth CC.

Derbyshire U15 Girls in entertaining game at Queens Park

 

 

Derbyshire U15 Girls entertained Durham at a sunny Queens Park, Chesterfield on Tuesday 21st May. It was great to see our former coach Rachel Hopkins and ex England star Danni Hazel with the Durham Girls. Durham won the toss and elected to bat first and scored freely throughout their 40 overs finishing on 225 for 8 with a great knock of 86 from opener Holly Spoors. Derbyshire captain Eden Collier finishing with 4 wickets for 47 runs. Derbyshire set about the challenging total at a great pace with openers Katie Janusewska and Lara Shaw putting on 33 before Lara was run out for 14. A great third wicket stand of 65 between Katie and Lily Dalkin-Strube kept the run chase going at a fast rate before Katie was out for 37 and Lily's great knock of 53 ended shortly after. A great seventh wicket stand of 60 between Eden (30) and Vicky Billington (36) edged Derbyshire closer to their target. Derbyshire were looking good at 203 for 7 with 6 overs remaing but then had a disastrous collapse losing three wickets in four balls ending up all out for 204.
