Carnforth Cricket Club girls team wins league title

The victorious Carnforth Cricket Club girls team

Carnforth Cricket Club's girls team have triumphed in the Super 8s Hardball Lancashire League.

Carnforth started with defeat to Shireshead and Forton CC, losing by 35 runs. However, they bounced back in emphatic fashion with a crushing 132 run victory over Garstang CC. 

A hard fought 17 run triumph at Morecambe CC followed which meant that Carnforth girls could secure the title with a victory over Carnforth women down at Lodge Quarry. 

The girls edged out their senior counterparts with a 31 run win, securing the title and the bragging rights in the process. 

This is the latest in a series of highs for the women’s cricket scene at Carnforth which started back in 2019. 

This is the first year Carnforth has had a girls-only team and the rewards have been encouraging. 

The girls, aged between 14-16, continue to keep improving with some now going for trials for Lancashire. 

Some have made their senior debuts this season, playing for Carnforth’s XI team in the Westmorland Cricket League.
