Cricket Festival Winners For Queen Anne’s

Friday 8th July 2016

On Monday 27 June, Queen Anne’s participated in an Inter-School Cricket Festival at Highdown School, winning two matches against the hosts to earn themselves the title of Festival Winners. The 15-strong team included:

  • Pankhuri Agarwal
  • Emily Batchelor
  • Lottie Cox
  • Caitlin Feilder
  • Natalie Gass
  • Emma Harris
  • Romilly Hayward
  • Isabelle Hudson
  • Georgia McBurney
  • Maya McCarthy
  • Samantha Mundy
  • Hermoine Spencer
  • Lottie Washer
  • Charlotte Woodall
  • Ellie Underwood

The Festival Batting Highlights featured fantastic performances from Samantha Mundy (10), Hermione Spencer (8) and Lottie Cox (7) and the Festival Bowling Honours (all from 1 over) were awarded to Georgia McBurney 1/0, Romilly Hayward 1/1, Charlotte Woodall 1/3 and Lottie Washer 1/6. Participating in the Highdown Inter-School Cricket Festival proved to be a brilliant start to the schools’ cricket success as from September 2016, cricket will be incorporated into the PE curriculum.

Please find below for the highlights from both the Queen Anne’s matches:


Queen Anne’s (136/1) vs Highdown (107/3) 

Queen Anne’s won by 29 runs

Queen Anne’s won the toss and invited Highdown to bat.  Taking to the field, Lottie Washer opened the bowling confidently and was rewarded with a wicket from a very good delivery.  Sammy kept up the good work with a second wicket falling from a sharp run-out.  Caitlin Fielder and Emily Batchelor both bowled with great line and length giving away very little from their overs.  Georgia McBurney took a wicket from her first ball with the aid of a great catch from Sammy Mundy and a further wicket fell in Maya McCarthy’s over from another very good run out.

Chasing a total of 107, opening batter Sammy Mundy wasted no time getting started, powering her way to two boundaries including a cracking 6 that sailed into the ground of the match next door.  Batting partner Lottie Washer also hit the ball confidently adding valuable runs and was only denied boundaries by some very good Highdown fielding.  Second pair Georgia and Caitlin Fielder also batted well, both of them running quick singles and communicating well.  Final pair Emily Batchelor and Maya McCarthy batted confidently pushing the score on further and completing the Queen Anne’s innings on 136/1.


Queen Anne’s (148/2) vs Highdown (126/3)

Queen Anne’s won by 22 runs

Highdown won the toss and elected to field first. Queen Anne’s opening bats, Isabelle Hudson and Ellie Underwood, got Queen Anne’s off to a cracking start with both girls reaching the boundary and running quick singles. Next pair, Charlotte Woodall and Natalie Gass, took their opportunities well with both adding to the run rate.  Third Pair Emma Harris and Pankhuri Agarwal continued the good work with some excellent shots and were only denied boundaries from an increasingly confident Highdown field.  Final pair Hermione Spencer and Lottie Cox were powerhouses with the bat with both girls selecting their shots beautifully and finding gaps to reach the boundary. Queen Anne’s closed their innings on 148/2.

Pace bowler Romilly Hayward opened the Queen Anne’s bowling with some tight deliveries and was rewarded with a wicket, clean bowled.  Emma Harris, Hermione Spencer and Ellie Underwood all bowled accurate overs keeping the Highdown run rate to a minimum. Charlotte Woodall took a super caught and bowled wicket from her over and Isabelle Hudson closed Queen Anne’s bowling with a run out from her final ball leaving the hosts short of their target by 22 runs.

What’s remarkable is that just three weeks ago, the majority of the Queen Anne’s girls had never played cricket before but after just three weeks of coaching they played their first-ever matches with confidence and skill.  It bodes extremely well for the future … well done girls!
