U/14 GIRLS COUNTY CUP REPORT

U/14 GIRLS COUNTY CUP REPORT

The U14 Girls Norfolk team travelled to Harlow for the 2019 County Cup.

The team of Chloe Youngs, Daisy Waddison, Ruby Syer, Isabella Taylor and Darcie Jarmy. All of which will be eligible to play in the event next year.

The team started the event with a close fought win over Bedfordshire 4-2. The match was tough as conditions continually disrupted play. The girls kept their focus and managed to get the win despite a very late finish.

Day 2 saw the team play against a very strong and experience Middlesex team who went on to win the event. The girls gave everything they had but Middlesex were too strong and prevailed 6-0.

The final day started with a close match against Isle of Man. With good singles wins for Ruby and Chloe it went to the doubles to decide the result. Again despite pushing them all the way Norfolk narrowly lost both doubles meaning a match result of 4-2 to Isle of Man.

The event finished with a final match against Essex who were out to finish second behind Middlesex. Essex having a more experienced and older side proved to strong for Norfolk running out 6-0 winners.

Norfolk ended the event finishing 4th. All the girls should be proud of their efforts and attitude towards every match. With all the team being able to go back next year they have all gained valuable experience for the future.
