U15 Hertfordshire County Cricket Championships Win

28th March 2022

A group of twelve talented Year 10 students at St Margaret’s are celebrating this week, having won the U15 County Cricket Championships for Hertfordshire.

The finals tournament, which took place on Wednesday 23 March, across two days, saw the girls compete locally against other finalists - Beaumont School in St Albans, Presdales School in Ware and Roundwood Park School in Harpenden. In a round robin of final matches, the 10 player squad at St Margaret’s were victorious, winning all three games, and taking home the prestigious championship title.

“We all worked hard as a team as we batted and bowled our way to a win!”

During the finals, Safia (Team Captain) and Megan (Year 10) both bowled with incredible skill and accuracy, taking vital wickets at crucial moments. With bat in hand, the team each steered home the St Margaret’s win with confidence and authority across all three of the exciting games. Mr Dan Payne-Cook, Director of Sport at St Margaret’s said, "The girls were very nervous leading up to their first ever competitive cricketing competition, but their unity and their obvious desire to learn, has really shone through. The girls' positivity and support for one another really makes the team greater than the sum of its parts. Long may this continue as we progress into the regional finals where we will be competing against the winners of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex."
