 CUMBRIA GIRLS IN T-20 SUCCESS

Cumbria Girls U15 cricket team captained by Netherfield CC's Sarah Earl won the North Area County Age Group U15 T20 Tournament played at Netherfield on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th May beating Lancashire in the final by 4 wickets.
The four team tournament comprised of Cumbria, Lancashire, Durham and Northumberland all playing each other in a round robin basis with the top two progressing to the final. 
Cumbria had earlier beaten Northumberland by 85 runs and Durham by 3 wickets and lost by 1 run to Lancashire finishing 2nd in the table. 
In the final Cumbria lost the toss and Lancashire elected to bat, but superb bowling by Holly Cowper (Keswick) 2-11, Katie Robson (Workington) 2-17 and Sarah Earl 2-16 ably backed up by very good ground fielding restricted Lancashire to 80 for 7 from there 20 overs. In reply Cumbria set off well reaching 13 before the 1st wicket fell and another 2 quick wickets followed quickly leaving the girls 19 for 3, a 4th wicket stand of 48 between Sarah Earl (30) and Holly Cowper (27 not out) took the score to 70 before another mini collapse with 2 run outs left Cumbria requiring 8 from 2 overs but 2 boundaries from Ella Telford (Penrith) took Cumbria home to scenes of wild excitement from the home team and supporters. 
The girls thoroughly deserved this win and the long treks all over the county in bad weather for indoor winter training paid off handsomely.
Local girls Ashleigh Curwen and Emily Dibble both Netherfield also played their part for Cumbria in the tournament.

Cumbria U15 Girls rounded off a memorable season with victory at the T20 Development National Finals at Warwick CC on 20th August, where they beat Huntingdonshire to lift the trophy.

Batting first, the Cumbrians posted 116 for 4 from 20 overs, with Keswick's Holly Cowper weighing in with 41 and Meg Lewis 25 not out. In reply, Huntingdonshire looked shaky at losing their second and third wickets on 37, but from 57 for 5 after 11 overs went on to make a game of it, being finally bowled out in the last over for 104. Sarah Smith was pick of the travelling bowlers with 4 for 28 from her four overs - the Cumbrians playing by the adage 'catches win matches', holding on to five in total.

2012 SEASON:

This years U15 squad will reflect on the 2012 season with memories of a resounding U15 County Age Group League win over Northumberland away, and a hard-fought well deserved win in the U13 League against Northants, at Threlkeld CC, on a beautiful spring Sunday. Other League fixtures were blighted by poor weather, with one loss and several ending in no-result.

Nonetheless, most players attended the summer Malvern College cricket festivals at either U13, U15 or  U19 age group,  or all three, and turned in sound personal and team performances, with the then U13s going unbeaten in all four games.  Great fun was had, players developed, and many friends from other Counties were made. We’ll be there again in 2013 – see www.malcol.net  for information.

Indoor winter squad sessions commenced in November, with 21 hours of coaching scheduled over 7 Sundays, concluding third week in March. The squad is 14 strong, with a high attendance rate and strong individual development seen so far.  Additionally, there are several selected players benefitting from the focus and intensity of the Emerging Player Programme – 7 sessions of 5 hours, with high coach:player ratio.

The team will again play in the ECB Women's U15 County Championship - U15 North & East Development league in 2013, against Northumberland, Durham and Lancashire Development, progressing to play-off finals if successful.

The prospects for U15 girls cricket in 2013 is very good indeed. Please see fixtures for further information.
