Womens Softball Festival - Chesterfield CC!!!

Womens Softball Festival - Chesterfield CC!!!

Photo 11 06 2019 16 38 21

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.
