Rainhill Girls finish 3rd in Thunder tournament

By Andrew Page

Great performance from girls' team at Aigburth

There was success for Rainhill yesterday - as our girls' softball cricket team finished third in the Thunder tournament.

The tournament took place prior to the Roses clash between Lancashire Thunder and Yorkshire Diamonds at Liverpool Cricket Club.

18 women’s and girls' teams entered, with 7 of them being in the under 15s category. After playing two games each the Rainhill girls finished in an excellent 3rd place.

The final positions were as follows:

Carnforth CC (516 pts)
Torrisholme CC (505)
Rainhill (495)
Dolgellan (471)
Wavertree (471)
Hightown St Mary's (467)
Tarleton (440)

The girls all played well and were very supportive of each other. The teams youngest players, Amy and Grace, had never played in a game before but both coped well under the pressure with some solid batting and bowling.

The club is justifiably proud of the efforts of this talented team.

The girls practice every Monday evening from 5pm. Anyone interested in taking part should contact Mike at mikerotheram@gmail.com
