Mersham Women Triumph Again
Another fine team performance saw Mersham beat Town Malling by 8 wickets in the Kent Women’s T20 League match at the Old County Ground on Sunday.
Batting first, Town faced some tight bowling and excellent fielding which included 2 run-outs and reached 85-7 at the end of their 20 overs with good scores from Katie Fawcett 26, Hannah Kruger 17 and a late flurry from Kate Worsfold 13 not out.
In reply the Mersham openers put on 51 without loss in 8 overs with Rachel Stevens retiring (under the League rules) Not Out 32. Her opening partner Chelsea Lenihan scored an impressive 20 and when she departed Katie Jordan (16 not out) was joined by Lauren Uttley (9 not out) who reached the target with 4 overs remaining.
