Haileybury v St Albans Cricket Club Women's 1XI on Sat 24 Apr 2021 at 2pm
St Albans Cricket Club Lost by 21 runs

Match report An enjoyable start to the St Albans Women's season with a friendly against the Haileybury school Girls 1st Xl. The sun was shining, there was cake provided (yum!) and it was a great game for blowing away the lockdown cobwebs. St Albans won the toss and elected to field. Cerys Jones kicked us off with a wicket first ball but then Haileybury captain Ella Payne-Cook hit beautifully down the ground to bring up 26* retired in just 12 balls. St Albans took wickets at regular intervals and encouraged as many bowlers as possible to turn their arm over, unearthing a few potential secret weapons in the process! Haileybury were restricted to 137 for 5 with Saskia Heard also reaching her retirement score of 27* and Sophie Meredith leading the wickets with 2-31. In reply, St Albans made a steady start with both openers katy Langley (15) and Louise Nichols (21) finding the boundary off the opening bowlers. Jennie Kitzinger reached the retirement score of 26* and a final charge from our middle order took St Albans up to 116 for 3 and just short of the target. The game wasn't about the win though but getting as many players involved as possible and enjoying crossing the boundary rope again - and on that front we'd class it as a big win!
