Dutch courage in vain

By Laura Taylor, Jun 6 2019 01:38PM

Spare a thought for young Somerset batsman Niamh Holland in this year’s sixth School Sport Magazine National Schools U15 Girls T20 Cricket Cup.

The talented Wellington School pupil enjoyed an impressive start to the season – scoring 263 runs in just three matches, including an unbeaten 103 against Taunton School, 67 not out against Castle School and 93 against Millfield in their county play-off - but it still wasn’t enough to get her side across the line and into the last 16.

Despite helping Wellington to an impressive 144-5 in their 20 overs, Millfield’s Jess Hazell (48no) and India Owen (41) saw their team home with 14 balls to spare in one of the best games of the tournament so far.

The Somerset champions will now play Parkstone Grammar School for a place in the last eight.
