Derbyshire U15 Girls v Cumbria U15 Girls

Derbyshire U15 Girls (232-5) beat Cumbria U15 Girls (57 All Out)


A glorious May Day welcomed the start of the under 15 girl’s season at the superbly set Wirksworth ground. Our visitors from the north, Cumbria, decided to make the most of seeing the sun and opted to field first. Derbyshire started positively with Lara Shaw (19) and Katie Januszewska (22) in particular playing some powerful shots. Derbyshire  quickly  moved to 55-2 before , Alice Harwood (55), on her home ground came to the crease, later she was joined by  Suzie Ljubojevic (61*)  and they  put on a superb 93 for the 5th wicket. Both scored Maiden County 50’s and it was a delight for the crowd to see the potential of both girls being realised with a string of shots around the ground. Derbyshire finished on 233-5 with Grace Fishleigh adding a quick-fire unbeaten 19 at the end.

Chasing 232 was always going to be tough,  but Cumbria’s openers made a bright start putting 44 on before Grace (2-8) struck with the ball as first change bowler. Backed up by some good fielding and accurate bowling from Jess Thatcher and Eden Collier Derbyshire began to stop the Cumbrian progress and then Charlotte Thompson was introduced and claimed a magnificent 3 for 0 with her leg breaks. The captain Keeley Brodrick (1-16) wrapped up the final wicket with Cumbria on 57 and Derbyshire had won by 175 runs. The team spirit from all 12 was excellent and with several players producing hugely improved performances, there are good signs of a successful season ahead.

Derbyshire Women V Sussex & Essex

Derbyshire Women V SussexDerbyshire Cricket Board Womens 1st XI v Sussex Womens 1st XI

Record breaking Bank holiday temperatures greeted the players in Brighton for the opening weekend. A relegated Sussex boasting world cup winners, internationals and academy players would prove a difficult challenge. New skipper Kayleigh Best and debutant Natasha Allen replacing the retired Charlotte Horton and Durham bound Rachel Hopkins. Having won the toss Sussex chose to bat first. Danni Wyatt (19) and Georgia Adams (106) opened confidently, both being dropped early in their innings. Wyatt eventually falling to a Sarah Glenn catch off Alice Dyson (8-0-50-1). Opener Leah Kellogg (7-0-53-0) bowled with good pace as Sarah Taylor (58) showed her skills at the crease. Amy Lacey (5-0-24-0), Sarah Glenn (7-0-42-0) Lucy Yates (5-0-32-0) all bowled with little support in the field as 6 catches went down. Kayleigh Best (10-0-68-4) provided the breakthrough with the first ball of her spell removing Taylor. Another international arriving at the crease (Georgia Elwiss 16) became Georgie Harrisons (8-0-43-2) first victim thanks to a good catch behind by an impressive Bess Heath. With the scoreboard ticking over at 6 an over another Georgie Harrison wicket and 2 more from the skipper, one thanks to a smart Lauren Tuffrey catch saw the innings end at 316 for 7.

If the chase wasn’t daunting enough Derbys got off to the worst start possible, Megan Pittman (0) falling to an unplayable first ball from the impressive Freya Davies (10-6-10-6). With Lauren (1), Sarah (4), Kayleigh (2) and Bess (0) all falling early the scoreboard at 17 for 5 and still 300 required, looked gloomy. Alice (27) and Leah (15) took the score to 47 but as wickets continued to fall Tash Allen (3) Lucy (0) and Georgie (3) left Amy unbeaten on 3, 65 all out. A lesson from a team playing in the wrong division was given out. In front of England manager Mark Robinson the game proved very one sided but to watch and compete against the very best the womens game has to offer should provide some inspiration.

Derbyshire Cricket Board Womens 1st XI v Essex Womens 1st XI

Straight into the cars and an 80 mile commute from Brighton to Southend on Sea to prepare for Essex. The impressive Garon Park hosted the fixture. With Megan Pittman travelling back to Durham University and Emma Thatcher coming into the side another hot and sunny morning would ensure a second blistering day in the field. Winning the toss meant Kayleigh put Essex into bat. Leah Kellogg (5-2-7-0) and Alice Dyson (10-0-41-3) taking the new ball. Lucy Yates (4-0-16-1) and Amy Lacy (7-1-18-0) provided the back up as Essex toiled at 48 for 4. 5th & 6th wicket partnerships took the score to 118 for 6 but with 4 magnificent catches from Bess and 3 Run outs Essex stumbled to 130 for 9. A spirited final wicket partnership of 13 from the final 3 overs proved frustrating as the innings closed on 143 for 9.

Lauren Tuffrey (4) and Tash Allen (10) opened but Laurens early departure meant some early caution as Sarah Glenn joined Tash. The score advanced to 35 for 3 as Tash and Bess (0) fell in quick succession. Alice (28) and Sarah then took Derbys to 116 as Sarah hammered the ball to all corners. As Alice fell chasing a wide delivery Leah (5) partnered Sarah to within 13 of victory. However, just as a victory looked the only possible outcome the team capitulated, firstly Leah then Lucy (0), Sarah for a magnificent 72 that included a towering 6, Emma (0) and the runner assisted Kayleigh (2) thanks to a farcical run out and Amy (0) falling first ball all went quickly leaving the score at 139 all out. Derbyshire condemning themselves to defeat, a single hit from winning a game they looked like winning for 90 of the 93 overs played. A long and silent journey home for the players who, but for a couple over the weekend, all need to take a good look at the way they failed in Southend. With more difficult away fixtures in Devon and Wales to come the players need to knuckle down and show more resilience. That final Essex batting partnership and a crumbling confidence with the bat, proving decisive.

The Lord Taverners - Derbyshire Table Cricket Competition 2018

Lord Tavs Table Cricket

Last month saw our 2nd annual Table Cricket competition, this year we were able to grow our competition to three table cricket competitions over three days. This was due to our significant increase in participants wanting to play the game. We had a brilliant turn out over the three days including 13 teams and 85 participants.

Since September 2017 the DCB’s Cricket Development Coaches have been delivering table cricket sessions to SEN schools all over Derbyshire with the help from The Lord’s Taverners. Children aged 7 – 16 have taken part in many sessions over the last few months to learn about table cricket and improve their skills. The sessions were enjoyed by both teachers and students which allowed us to put on such a successful three days of competition.

SEN Table Cricket Finals

Our first competition was hosted by Ashgate Croft. Four teams played, Swanwick Sports College, Chapel High School and two from Ashgate Croft. All games were high scoring with one of the Ashgate Croft teams coming out on top overall. The final game of the league format was Chapel High who were in 2nd and Ashgate Croft in 1st in a winner takes all battle. Chapel batted first and scored 251 losing 3 wickets in the process, then Ashgate Croft batted second and scored 277 only losing one wicket.

The second competition was hosted by The Royal School for the Deaf Derby. Six teams were involved in the second of the week with four teams from RSDD, Holbrook School for Autism and St Martins. RSDD’s blue team were the eventual winners on the day, they triumphed over RSDD’s green team with the biggest score of the week of 308. The captain of the green team taking an over for a massive 32 runs.

Our final competition of the week was at Stanton Vale School. Bennerley Fields School, Alfreton Park and Stanton Vale were the final three teams to take part in the competition. All games were tight and played within 10 runs, Stanton Vale took the competition as they went on unbeaten.

We were delighted to be joined by Billy Godleman, Derbyshire CCC's first team captain at The Royal School for the Deaf. Billy hadn’t previously experienced table cricket and it was great to have him involved.

We would like to say a huge thanks to our three great hosts, Ashgate Croft, Royal School for the Deaf Derby and Stanton Vale and the Lord’s Taverners for making it possible. We are already looking forward to our 2019 competitions.
