Under 9s Girls team in action

On Sunday 22nd May our Under 9 girls team played in their very first softball tournament.  The festival was organised by Oxfordshire Cricket and hosted by Warborough & Shillingford CC.

The first game was against Tiddington CC and was the first game our Dynamos had ever played, they did really well but fell short of the win.  We then played on of the Warborough teams.  This game the girls wanted to improve on their bowling and fielding, which they did and as a result they came closer to a win. The final game was against the other Warborough team, this time the girls wanted to improve their batting, specifically running between the wickets.  Again the improvement was noticeable during this game and throughout the day.

The girls may not have come away with a win but to have played their first ever matches and, to be able to say they were the first girls to play as a Girls Under 9s team at Charlbury is a very special achievement.  It was great to see a glimpse of what the future of Women’s cricket will be like!

As a special memento of the occasion we had some customised mini bats made for the players.

Special Thanks to Chloe for coaching the girls on the day!
