The Year 7 girls have arrived in droves since the start of the spring term to take part in school cricket practices, which was great to see and most have improved their skills. It was just a shame that the U13 Lady Taverner’s Barrow Schools girls comp arranged for early February was reduced to a two school best of 3 game comp, with UVHS taking on Furness Academy. It was the first time our Year 7 team had played indoor cricket and up against a mostly Year 8 Furness Academy team, they acquitted themselves really well. The first game resulted in a 20 run loss and although the girls settled and played some much better cricket in the second game, another 20 run loss was the result. The girls should be really please with their efforts and with a bit more practice and a year under the belts, hopefully we can come out on top next year.
