dccc logo

The sun shone brightly yesterday as our U13 Girls played Leicestershire at the very picturesque Clifton Ground.   

In keeping with the ECB guidance to try different formats in U13 Girls Development Cricket both sides had agreed to play a two, 16 over, innings game with reduced boundaries.

After captain Alex Owens had won the toss and elected to bat first Derbyshire posted a total of 95 for 4 in their first innings with Harriet Parkin scoring 41 and Lola Blake 17. Leicestershire started their first innings at a rapid rate and were 84 for 2 after 8 overs, but the Derbyshire Girls had a spirited fightback in the second half of the innings resulting in Leicestershire being 119 for 8 at the close of their innings, Arabella King and Olivia Haskell both taking 3 wickets and Beth Sheridan taking the other 2 wickets.

Derbyshire had a profitable second innings finishing on 109 for 1 with Harriet Parkin 40 not out, Eve Mitchener 25 not out. Leicestershire went into the final innings of the game needing 86 to win. Derbyshire bowled tightly at the start and Leicestershire lost wickets at regular intervals, however, with 9 balls of the game remaining they managed to hit the winning for runs to give them victory by 3 wickets.

It had been a great days cricket and a fantastic advertisement for U13 Girls County Cricket, played in a great spirit with fantastic weather.

Finally a huge thanks to Clifton CC for their wonderful hospitality.
