For the final Women’s Softball Cricket Festival of 2019 the Capel team of Suzi, Amy, Michelle, Jo H, Jo B, Lisa and Nicole, accompanied by coach Bim, travelled to Town Malling’s ground on 7th September. 5 teams competed – Galleywood, Beckenham Ladies, Capel Ladies, Town Malling Swans and Town Malling Pens.
Facing the most challenging opponents of the season brought out the best in the Capel side, with every member of the on-form team playing an excellent game. They were victorious in three of their matches, and only narrowly beaten by Beckenham by 6 runs in the fourth, resulting in them being overall winners.
To win a trophy in their first year of competitive playing is a great tribute to the energy, enthusiasm and rapidly improving cricketing skills of our Ladies team, and the dedication of their coach, Bim. ‘Champagne moments’ were awarded to Jo H and Suzi, the Team Captain, but the whole team deserves to celebrate – and be celebrated!
