ECB Girls School Indoor Cricket

Published: 19.02.2023 ( a year ago )

The North West Wales round of the ECB Girls School Indoor Cricket took place at the Dome in Bangor on Thursday 16th Feb.

The u13s started the competition with their first match against Ysgol Aberconwy, captained by Emily. They started off jittery and were nervous for their first game, as some hadn't played before but were keen to have a go. They had a close game BUT narrowly lost to Ysgol Aberconwy.

Amelia captained the u15 team and they had their first match against Ysgol Aberconwy and demonstrated great teamwork in the fielding with lots of communication. The umpire for their match commented that they had great depth and had lots of potential as a team.

The u13s gained experience from watching the u15s and they went into their next game against Ysgol Friars with more confidence. They managed to win their second match with over a hundred runs.

The U15s had their second game against Ysgol Bro Idris which was close, but they managed to win on runs and with their tight fielding and excellent batting.

The U13s were waiting to hear if they had gone into the final as it was on the last match that was being played. They managed to get through on runs and played the final against Eirias High School. This was a tough game, and great experience for our girls but Eirias managed to get the win for the final match.

The U15s had won both their matches so were into the final against Dyffryn Ogwen. After a tense final the U15s came out on top and were the winners of the whole competition and the girls were thrilled and lots of smiles all round.

All of the girls had a fantastic day. We had a mixed range of ability in both teams, but all of the girls got so much from the day. The girls that had not played as much had the opportunity to learn new skills and have a go at playing indoor cricket. The girls that had more experience of playing cricket were able to share their knowledge and lead the team and help and support the younger girls.

'It was a privilege to take the girls to the competition and see how they all developed during the day and to come out with two great results was an absolute bonus and a testament to the girls' sporting ability and a big thank you to North Wales Womens Cricket for organising it.'
