Match Report
Gresham's School 1st XI Girls vs  The Leys School
On: Saturday, 23 Apr 2022
Venue: at Home

The first ever girls' First XI match was a momentous occasion and the team rose to the challenge with 5 year 9s, 4 year 10s and 2 year 11s turning out against a far more experienced Leys XI.

Losing the toss, we batted first and settled into a decent rhythm with Esther Broad (25 not out) and Grace Hanworth-Knights (13) leading the way, eventually posting 82 for 5 off our 20 overs.

Bowling second was a tough task on an increasingly windy afternoon but the 6 who took the ball all showed that we will have plenty of fire power to win in future matches, Charlotte Gaunt looking particularly menacing with some impressive pace and Poppy Goode showing consistent line and length.

PotM was Esther Broad, facing the first and last balls of the match to carry her bat with 25.
