Jets go top of CWCL Soft Ball League

Jets go top of CWCL Soft Ball League
26 Jul 2021

Sunday saw a double header at London Road as the Jets Women & Girls continued their 2021 league campaign. Taking advantage of Toft withdrawing from the afternoon game due to Covid isolations, the match was swiftly rearranged to accommodate Broadbottom.

Women & Girls v Macclesfield

The morning’s fixture saw a close game with Macclesfield CC - NECCC’s greater wicket haul making all the difference to the result. Lola Reed’s bowling of two wickets plus a catch was the standout contribution in the field. The hard hitting Macc final partnership was kept quiet with some good tight overs from the mother and daughter pairing of Cheryl & Chloe Waites. Runs were shared all around as the Jets chased down the Macclesfield total. The match finished with a Jets victory: net scores of 321 to Macc & 330 to NECCC.

Women & Girls v Broadbottom

The afternoon saw NECCC field a different team against Broadbottom. After the first coin toss landed on its edge, NECCC lost the toss and were put into bat. Chloe Waites, the only Jet to play in both games, had a great batting partnership with Kate Horobin to add 58 runs to the total as the team amassed 141 runs from their 16 overs. In reply, Broadbottom only managed 91; Libbie McClintock taking her first league wicket on her debut. The match finished again with a Jets victory: net scores of 356 to NECCC & 306 to Broadbottom.

This year’s focus of encouraging women and girls to play cricket meant that today’s two eight-a-side games saw NECCC field a total of 15 players across the day, including league debuts for Ruby Reed, Libbie McClintock, Laura Switzer and Jane McBrien.

The two victories saw the Jets sitting at the top of the division on Sunday evening.
