    The final of the seasons BYCL girls U12 competition was held at Wokingham Cricket Club on Sunday 7th and divided into two cups.  WICC had qualified for the gold cup having won all their groups games.

    Gold Cup    Silver Cup

    Henley   Finchampstead
    Maidenhead & Bray Does   Maidenhead & Bray Roos
    Pangbourne & Whitchurch A   Wokingham
    West Ilsley   Berkshire All Stars
    (Ecletic team from the above clubs)

    We took seven play Juliet  Banks (Capt) , Daisy Chambers, Mae Hagan, Katie Scriven (WK), Lottie Aird, Amelia Wilson, and Rose Curtis.  Amelia and Rose both kindly played for the All Stars when not playing for West ilsley.

    We won the opening match against Maidenhead with the score at 279 -3 v 228 – 9
    Against Henley a nail biting finish with West Ilsley losing by 4 runs.  261 – 3 v 265 -3
    Emphatic victory against a young Pangbourne and Whitchurch team. 311 – 2 v 240 - 3

    Every one contributed to this result – firstly Juliet who captained the team. Her tactics and field placements resulted in containing the other teams scoring ability and ultimately made this victory possible. She also made, as always, a strong contribution with bat and ball .  Daisy, top scored – and with three 6’s in one over, and a reverse sweep for 4, you could hear the whispers going around the tournament! Katie wearing the gloves took a catch off Lottie, and also took four wickets with the ball, while Juliet relieved her as keeper. Mae bowled very tidily with two for 17 off 4, keeping the pressure on the batsman. Some good fielding from Lottie, Amelia and Rose  all contributed to a fine result.

    WICC won the championship as the team that had the best run/wicket differential (runs scored/wickets lost) - (runs conceded/wickets taken).

    We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the others that have played in this tournament throughout the season and without whom we would not have made the finals. Thanks also to Pete, Maria and David for all the coaching and support.
