U13 Girl’s Indoor County Cricket Finals at Truro College

Last week saw our U13 Girl’s Cricket team narrowly miss out on the County Cup trophy, following a one-run loss to Richard Lander School.

After progressing out of their group with two fantastic wins against St Ives and Richard Lander, Penryn defeated Liskeard in the semis to set up a repeat fixture against Richard Lander in the final.

The nail-biting encounter saw both teams produce some fantastic play with the bat and ball, with Richard Lander securing the tournament victory.

Well done, girls, and congratulations to Richard Lander!
