Dulwich Ladies win Indoor Plate League – Sunday 4 March 2012
Over the past 6 weeks Dulwich Ladies have participated in the Women's Surrey Indoor Competition. This was a debut for the Ladies' section. After a couple of games, all 8 teams were placed in further pools. Dulwich Ladies were elected to play in the Plate pool. On the 19th February the tournament began in earnest and in the first two games we faced Streatham & Malborough and then Epsom. Dulwich won both games taking maximum points and sitting very comfortable at the top of the Plate pool. On the 4th March we played our third game against Spencer which was followed by 3rd an 4th place playoff. We didn't let Spencer have an easy game but we unfortunatley lost the game in the final overs. This did not dampen the Dulwich Ladies' spirit as it was announced that the Plate final was to be Dulwich v. Streatham & Malborough. The ladies were elated and, after a team talk, got down to work. Dulwich lost the toss and were elected to bat first making a total of 67 after 8 overs. Great batting performance!Dulwich took the ball and restricted Streatham & Malborough to 42 after 8 overs, it was a brilliant display of acurrate bowling, very tight fielding and an outstanding catch by Lyndsay Morton. Dulwich Ladies have won their first tournament!
A special thank you to all the ladies who participated: Cath, Ali, Jax,
Jane, Kira, Anne, Riana, Julie, Lyndsay & Sam. Cath and Sam selected
Anne Sage as the player of the tournament as she displayed consistancy
with the bat and ball and kept the team on their toes and motivated.
All the Ladies displayed team work to perfection.
The side began in 2004, as local coach and cricketer Lara arranged an exhibition session for women cricketers at the Burbage Road ground but it was not until 2006 that a fully fledged women's section became a reality.
Players were recruited from within the club, by word of mouth, through links with local schools and the website. Some players came through the Southwark and Surrey youth development programmes. Many arrived new to the game and some players came with previous cricketing experience.During the first historic season, one match was played away at Caterham in September 2006 which was won by Caterham. 2007 saw more games and more players. The first match at Burbage Road was a 15 over fixture in June 2007 between the cricket and hockey sections. The bigger hitting hockey side, who fielded some players with cricketing experience, won by 44 runs.
