Tarka Ladies win Lady Taverners 3rd Round


In what has proved a very exciting week for North Devon Girls’ cricket. North Devon Tarka Ladies enjoyed a fantastic victory over a very strong Bovey Tracey U15 team in the ECB Lady Taverners Hardball Competition. Playing at West Buckland School, with both teams fielding players currently featured in the England U15 Performance programme the match was always going to be hard fought.

Daisy Meadowcroft was the star performer for the North with the bat (54 NO) and Morgan Harrison-Hooton batting beautifully was cut off at 13 by a fantastic catch by Libby McNally. Chasing 120 ND Tarka won in the 18th over. The limiting of the strong batting line up from Bovey Tracey with some superb bowling were, Rose Ball 5 -1-8-1 and Carmen Clements 3-0-12-1.

The team Kate Williams, Rose Ball, Carmen Clements, Morgan Harrison- Hooton, Front Eluned Davies, Daisy Meadowcroft, Min Muir, Jess Thompson.

In the fourth round we are due to play Broadstone or Poole.
