After a few days of rain we were lucky to able to host our final fixture of the season against Loretto and Ardvreck this week. I was delighted with the commitment and concentration and equally pleased with being victorious in both matches. We were thrilled with the results as the “photobooth” style pictures show.
Thank you to our many supporters on the sidelines today, enjoying the fast paced game in the glorious sunshine. Huge congratulations to all the girls for a wonderful season on the Rounders circuit.

As back stop and 2nd post she worked tirelessly to get the ball where it had to be. Some wonderful throwing and catching along with good match tactics meant that Freyja was a very valuable team member stumping out players and catching out another. Unfortunately caught out against Loretto but scored 3 Rounders in the second match.
Once again, was strong as bowler and moved to back stop in the other match. Demonstrated her quick thinking, accurate throwing and excellent concentration throughout both matches and caught out a player. Scored a total of 4½ Rounders in the matches today.
Captain in the Loretto match. As 2nd post and 2nd deep she has gained confidence and skill working with backstop and bowler to stump players out. Score two ½ Rounders in each match.

Tried out at bowler today with great success and similarly worked hard to protect the 2nd deep area. As a “leftie”, she has a powerful swing and scored 1 Rounder in the match against Ardvreck.
