On a warm sunny evening at Rainhill, the under-11s Amazons, captained by Albie Ambage, put on a splendid performance, clinching a comprehensive victory over Old Xaverians CC.
Old Xaverians won the toss and elected to field first, a decision that Rainhill capitalised on with a display of cricketing ability.

Rainhill’s innings was marked by strategic running between the wickets, taking quick singles and sharp fielding, traits that set them apart from their opponents.
Rainhill’s batters displayed disciplined strokeplay and smart running, accumulating a formidable total of 113 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets in their allotted 15 overs. Benjamin Shute was the top scorer with a fluent 15 runs, ably supported by contributions from Annabelle Clifford (12 runs) and Erin Jones (12 runs).

In response, Old Xaverians faced a daunting task against Rainhill’s disciplined bowling attack.  Despite some resilience from George G who scored 17 runs, Old Xaverians struggled to counter the varied bowling skills of Rainhill.  Annabelle Clifford and Sarah Lawler led the bowling charge, claiming crucial wickets and restricting the opposition to a mere 36 runs all out in 15 overs.

Fielding was a standout aspect of Rainhill’s performance, with notable contributions from Sam Du Plessis and Alf Nulty, who took crucial catches and affected run-outs to keep the pressure on Old Xaverians throughout the match.

The Rainhill CC Under 11s Amazons showcased their potential and team spirit.
The team’s victory was a testament to their hard work and dedication, and they look forward to carrying this momentum into their next fixture, which is a semi final cup clash at home against Sefton Park reds.
