After winning the U13 borough indoor championship in December Waldegrave School travelled up to the Middlesex Cricket School in Finchley to contest the Outer London county final this week. The school is used by the Middlesex squads during the winter, where they hone their skills ready for the upcoming season. The walls (above) are adorned with many of the greatest players who played not only for Middlesex but England too.
The cricketing greats looked on with delight as Waldegrave School faced Vyners School in a best of three showdown. Waldegrave dealt their opponents two knock blows in a contest that didn’t go the distance. Dominant performances by Waldegrave sees them progress to the U13 Middlesex schools indoor final later this year.
The core of the team is represented with Bushy Park Girls and they played a significant role in both wins. Paige Goodwin captained the Waldegrave Swans, snaffling a caught and bowled chance as the ball ricocheted off the ceiling. Evie Davies and Ella Carran bossed their opponents with some fine fielding, while Jess Low knocked over her opponent’s off-stump with the first ball she bowled.
Well done girls and good luck in the next round.
