Cricket girls miss out, but basketball squad progress

Havering youngsters experienced mixed fortunes in London Youth Games action this week.

The girls indoor cricket team saw their hopes of a place in the finals at Lord’s shattered during the qualifying event at Harrow.

Rivals Wandsworth – the 2013 Jubilee Trophy champions – piled up 157-3 from their 10 overs and Havering could only manage 58-4 in reply.

Wandworth’s 113-run win over Enfield ensured they topped the group and reached the quarter-finals, making Havering’s result against them academic.

There was better news on the basketball court, though, as Redden Court beat Newham rivals Cumberland to keep their dream alive.

Redden Court won the right to represent Havering after winning the borough championships, then defeated Barking & Dagenham’s All Saints before edging past Cumberland by a 35-33 margin in an exciting encounter.

Teacher Valerie Hollingsworth said: “The girls played exceptionally well and Emily Roofe played a real captain’s role, scoring most of the baskets!

“We await the draw for the next game.”

Redden Court: Emily Roofe, Emily Diwell, Grace Deavin, Grace Pickford, Lucy Eost, Tayler Martin, Holly Nash, Amy Pinkney, Sophie Sands, Bethany Johnson, Holly Stubbs, Lucy Stubbs.
