The girls’ cricket team played their first competitive fixtures yesterday at Colfe’s School. Eltham was invited to take part in an 8-a-side tournament using a windball and plastic bats. This was a fantastic opportunity for the girls to display the skills they have picked up this term during games. Eltham put in solid performances against Dartford Grammar School and the hosts, Colfe’s School. Megan Lewis and Caitlin Chick were prolific with the bat, while Katie Jagger and Liv Rigby were outstanding in the field, both taking sublime catches. It was an enjoyable day for all and the schools involved are planning to recreate the tournament after half term.
