U13 Girls through to Lady Taverner's T20 Cup Southern Regional Final

Following a two and a half hour drive into the Berkshire countryside, the Spencer U13 Girls team were triumphant against a strong West Ilsley team, containing four Berkshire county players.
A determined 24 not out by Alice Eltringham anchored the Spencer innings. All the team contributed runs and they made 88-4 in 18 overs. (match reduced because of the rain and traffic).
In reply West Ilsley looked to have the match  in the bag. From 38 for 1 in the 7th over, to 68 for 3 in the 11th over, Spencer's superb bowling attack took wickets in every over from the 9th onwards.
There were wickets for Meghna Nandi, Emma Tyson, Natasha Parker, and Divia Dhir (2). The bowling was backed up by some outstanding catching and fielding. A magnificent overhead catch by Emma Tyson, run outs by Olivia Daniels/ Lucy Stopford and Alice Eltringham.
The match could have gone either way with West Ilsley needing 16 to win off 5 overs with one wicket left and their  main batter still not out on 48. It all ended with a top class delivery from Divya, which took an edge and was caught behind by Maddie Blinkhorn-Jones.
