As with all clubs our season was affected by the weather, but overall it could be considered a reasonably successful season.

Ground-breaking for Girls Cricket

For the first time we entered a girls team in the Middlesex Under 10 softball league. One team in the league withdrew leaving the girls with 6 matches, of which they won 4 and lost 2. In 2022 we intend to add a hardball team and look forward to seeing our girls section growing.

Under 9

The first venture into Middlesex cricket for our Under 9s was a success winning 7 of the 8 games played in the informal league. Next season they move into hard ball cricket and we wish them well in making the change.

Under 10

Our Under 10s first season of hard ball was a relative success. Of the 8 league games scheduled, 4 were won 2 lost and 2 abandoned. They failed to qualify in the Area section of the Gubby Allen.

Under 11

The Under 11s were victims of the weather. The A team were unbeaten all season but lost the league by virtue of having one more game abandoned than the league winners. Having won the area cup, their County Cup semi-final was twice rained off and the team lost a bowl out to Harrow St Mary’s. There were mixed fortunes for the B team in Middlesex and the Surrey league team.

Under 12

The Under 12s had a disappointing season despite some very good batting performances from Tom Goldney and also having 4 games lost to the weather. Of the 8 league games, 1 was won, 3 lost and 4 abandoned.

Under 13

Like the Under 11s our Under 13 team went undefeated in the league, winning 7 with 3 abandoned. They won the County cup which took them into the national competition where they lost to the eventual winners. Finals day in the league knockout was disappointing. They scraped through the semi-final by a count back but lost the final in an uncharacteristically poor display thus missing out on a county double.

Under 14

The U14s had an average season winning 3, losing 4 and having 3 abandoned in the league but did end the season with success winning the Area Cup.

Under 15

Our Under 15s finished second in their league winning 4 losing 2 and having 2 abandoned. They reached the semi-final of the County league knockout where they lost a game they perhaps should have won.

Under 17

Finally, similarly our U17s also finished second in their league and also appeared in the county league knockout finals day where they lost their semi-final in a close match.

More detail will be presented by age group managers at our presentation evening including our matches in the Surrey leagues.
