Young debutants make their mark on the Fete Tournament
The inaugural Cublington Fete Cup took place on a lovely sunny afternoon against the backdrop of the annual Cublington Village Fete. A triangular tournament took place involving both a Cublington Girls and Cublington Boys team along with an invitation side from Stewkley Cricket Club.
A couple of girls were making their debuts for the team, Inaya Jayawardena and 7 year old Rosalie Gates. Both girls played really well, making important contributions to an outstanding team performance. Inaya displayed an impressive array of batting shots and Rosalie demonstrating an infectious enthusiasm in the field.
The Cublington Girls team won both of their games quite comfortably, scoring runs at a good rate whilst conceding only one wicket. Rosie Utley's performance demonstrated how much her game has developed in only a few weeks with the club whilst Millie Debbage-Price gave a captain's performance, particularly with the bat. Player of the Tournament however was Charlotte Munro. Her batting in both games was outstanding as was her superbly accurate pace bowling.
Well done to everyone.
