First victory for Cheltenham Ladies
By Tim Buttress
Cheltenham Ladies celebrate their first ever victory.
A young Cheltenham Ladies team demonstrated that hard work, dedication and an excellent team-spirit are the ingredients to success.
Following some tough games the Ladies' team pulled off a well-earned victory at Cirencester Park this week. The team, packed with youth, worked together to pull off a rightly deserved win.
Asked to bat the openers combine well to put on a stand of 63 at a run a ball. The momentum was kept up throughout the second half of the innings with 118 post posted by the visiting team.
Cirencester opened had a strong opening pair, but a early break-through exposed a frail middle order. Tight bowling, committed fielding and strong team spirit ensured that Cheltenham were able to celebrate their first victory of the season.
