NEW initiatives for girls cricket saw players from Ashton on Mersey CC and Timperley CC combine to represent Trafford Girls in a Tournament on 15th June 2014 at Stockport Georgians CC.

It was the first opportunity for many to take part in competitive matches, and certainly a first for all in terms of all girls matches. Enjoyment, fun and match experience was the priority. Yet the girls came away with more than that. Opposition came from Marple, Appleton and Northwich as well as the hosts.

The U13s gave their all and surprised themselves with wickets, runs and catches. They saw the standard they might too achieve after five years of training, with Stockport Georgians well deserved winners. The U13s girls challenged well and came a very credible third place, Subs Pictured are the U13s, Hannah Maybury, Holly Jenkinson, Georgia Giles, Hannah Head, Ellie Conway, Ellie Racle, Annabelle Allan and Ojasvini Chorgade.
