A team of skilled Moreton U15 cricketers travelled to Shrewsbury Sports Village and were placed runners-up in the Lady Taverners County Indoor Cricket Finals. Matched against some strong opponents, the girls were excited to utilise the skills they have honed in training.
The Moreton side were brilliant in their games against Newport High and Bridgnorth Endowed School, winning both with confidence and style.
In the final fixture, they were matched against a very strong Shrewsbury School team. Despite facing a tough opponent, the Moreton side rose to the occasion and played extremely well. A fast-paced and exciting match finished with the Shrewsbury School team inching ahead, but it was a fantastic game that had spectators gripped.
The U15 Moreton team placed 2nd overall, a fantastic result.
Head of Sport, Kate Groves, commented: “What is exciting is that the majority of the team are comprised of Upper 4 girls. With continued practice this side will only get stronger, it is very promising.”
