The majority of the Kent Girl’s County Age Groups have this summer enjoyed a residential stay at a cricket festival held at Malvern College.
Situated in Worcestershire and run by MBDFestivals, our U11, 13 and 15 girl’s age groups all attended across August. Typically, players stay for 3 nights, play cricket for 3 days, swim, eat and sleep within the beautiful grounds of Malvern College. Below is a round up of how each age group faired.
On Day 1, the Kent U11 Girls beat the Gloucestershire U11 Girls twice, Day 2 saw them do the same to Colwall CC U11 Boys and on the third day they faced a little more challenge as Gloucestershire U13 Girls and Old Elizabethans U11 Boys ran out winners in the two final games of their tour.
The U13 Girls Red Caps side had a hugely successful summer festival, winning 100% of their games with some impressive team performances.
On Day 1, the Kent U11 Girls beat both the Gloucestershire U13 Girls Development and the Cambridgeshire U13 Girls. Day 2 saw them do the same again to Cambridgeshire and another win against Berkshire U13 Girls Development. On the third and final day they once again faced Berkshire in a longer over format, finishing comfortable winners.
The U13 Girls festival, although slightly rain affected, brought all sorts of fun for the girls.
Day 1 saw a win against Gloucestershire U13 Girls in a T20. Day 2 was weather affected which resulted in some indoor sports put on by the festival organisers. On the third and final day, the team narrowly lost against Northants in a tough longer over game.
U15 GIRLS RED CAPS
The U15 Girls Red Caps faced international opposition during their stay at Malvern and really progressed as a team across the three days.
On Day 1, Kent defeated Berkshire U15 Girls Development in the first T20, followed after lunch with a close defeat by Scotland’s U15 Girls team. On Day 2, Kent defeated Berkshire again and that afternoon convinvingly thrashed Norfolk U15 Girls.
The final day saw a rematch vs Scotland U15 Girls and, despite not posting a huge innings score, managed to bowl Scotland out and win the game with the support of the Kent U11 Girls who’d arrived for their tour!
Another hugely successful and enjoyable tour for our U15 Girls.
On the first day, Kent U15 Girls won a T20 fixture versus Berkshire U15 Girls. The second day saw a convincing win in a longer over format vs Northamptonshire U15 Girls and the third and final day saw another emphatic win against Cambridgeshire U15 Girls.
