Ladies XI

We have stayed in the GCB competitive league which offered ability to play 20-35over matches. We only managed 7 league matches this year, due to opposition unavailability but combined with friendlies had a fun and competitive season finishing mid table again.

Highlight of the season include a very close fought match with Bristol YMCA and some fun games against Cam.

We have continued to gain new players this season who have stuck around and quickly become an asset to the team with the bat and in the field as well as on the sidelines, so thanks to all.


Strong performances this year in bowling from Den Powell with solid performances in each match, making her this year’s bowler of the season with best of 2/17. Other good turn outs from Steph Wilson (2/9) and Becca Morrison (3/24) helped our line up

Some top batting helped secure some of our more challenging games and batswoman of the season Anna Derrick’s high score of 63 and average of 56 helped her to a well deserved batter of the season. Other showings included Rachel Evans (34) and Sonya (28*). Our batting this year was often slightly off the pace and we look forward to raising the bar next year.


This year saw some great moves forward in women’s cricket locally with some stand out training from GCC indoor and out and international cricket at the county ground. Something which is only set to continue with GCC already planning next years training and the Women’s World Cup being part hosted in Bristol

Thanks to all this season who helped us – particularly Peter Matthews and Ed for umpiring and all those who scored, particularly Rhiannon Wilson.
