Shenfield High School


Shenfield U13 girls cricket team competed in their first league fixture against Becket Keys last week. Unfortunately, captain Poppy Timson was playing up for an important U15 game and so couldn’t take part. Despite this, the girls put on a phenomenal performance on the day and made it look easy!

Shenfield batted first and managed to score 94-2 off of 16 overs. This came from some fantastic batting by Sophie Clark and Chloe Eastwell. Becket Keys had a hard act to follow, and this was made even harder by the exceptional fielding from our girls. We managed to limit Becket Leys to 26 runs, all out. Sophie Nyiro took three wickets with some exceptional bowling, supported by Sadie Kirrane, Adele Knapp, Maizi Garwood and Ellen Hoad who also took one wicket each.

A fantastic first league performance from this strong squad and we look forward to the games to come.
