U10 Cricket Sensation!
One of our Year 5 girls has had a fabulous cricket season so far, not only in her regular Datchworth girls team but also in her debut in the U10 boys team!
Ellie recently debuted for the Datchworth U10 boys as they hosted Knebworth Park, helping keep them joint top of their league with Welwyn Garden City!
Ellie came into bowl and the team soon realised that they had a star on their hands. Beautiful technique, putting the ball in the danger area every time! A wicket duly came and then another off a great catch by one of her teammates in the covers. If they had been playing LBW, Ellie would have had another two wickets! However, a “two-fer” on her debut was an excellent effort!
The end of Knebworth’s inning saw a score posted of 244 (off a 200 start). The total kept low by the 7 wickets taken by Datchworth combined with good fielding in the heat.
The end of the second innings saw Datchworth post 269 for 4 wickets – a good win that keeps them topping the league table with Welwyn. Match ball went to Ellie – to produce that all round performance after a late call-up was a fantastic debut!
Well done Ellie, we are very proud of you!
