Women Win HCWCL Division 1 Title

Charlbury took on Stony Stratford in the culmination of the league season in the Division 1 final, away at Stony Stratford CC. Charlbury had reached the final after a very close semi-final against Finchampstead CC last weekend, winning by just 17 runs. 
 
On Sunday, Charlbury lost the toss and were put into bat, they scored 199 from their 35 overs, with a fourth wicket partnership of 100 from Lottie Oxton (66) and Chloe Westbury (37) steadying the ship after the first three wickets fell for 50 runs. 
 
Charlbury took to the field and claimed the first wicket inside the third over, with the other opener being dismissed at the start of the 7th, Jessica Warren claiming both wickets. Stony’s captain hung around and scored 66 from 68 balls but Stony couldn’t reach the target. Six of the Charlbury players picked up wickets in the 54 run victory, with the pick of the bowlers being Abi Norgrove 2-8-0-5 and Jessica Warren 3-34-2-7.  The Scorecard can be seen HERE
 
Charlbury were presented with the trophy by Laura Crofts, Secretary of the HCWCL. This was a great way to end a very successful season, having won the Super 8s performance group earlier in the year!
