Grantham Girls under-14 cricket team enjoyed a sunny Sunday afternoon at Ketton Cricket Club and won the six-a-side hard ball competition involving Ketton, Narborough and Twycross cricket clubs.

All girls performed well and a young side, missing three county players, made a great effort for the club and each other to come out on top.

All games were close and the leadership and batting of captain Lily McKenzie-Blyth were outstanding. They fielded well and Lily Fitch and Libby Wheeler were the pick of the bowlers. Completing the squad were Ellie Bushell, Tazmin Brown, Lily Chow and Eleanor Bailey.

With some girls new to the hard ball game, they did the club proud.
