Sidmouth girls Under-13 took on Topsham St James at Bicton on a cold and blustery day.

In conditions that made batting and bowling difficult it was Sidmouth who emerged victorious.

For many of the girls this was a first experience of the hard ball game.

Sidmouth fielded first, and there was some great bowling from all the girls as they claimed six wickets with Topsham closing on 119-6 from 30 overs.

Fortunately the rain held off for long enough to enable Sidmouth to bat through with a score of 138-8 to seal victory.

Thanks to James Morrison for managing the team, and John Hansford for umpiring.

Sidmouth team: Libby Morrison (captain) Cassia Astley- Jones, Emma Seward, Lily Goodier, Caitlin Perry, Hannah Vicary, Bryony Monaghan, Robyn Hansford, Hannah Rudgard, Daisy Essex, Phoebe Broadhurst, Lucy Gosling, Katie Underwood.
