The New Mills Area Rounders competition was held on the 27th April at New Mills School Pavilion Fields. We took two mixed teams and competed against teams from Hayfield, St George’s, Thornsett, Furness Vale and Hague Bar. New Mills Blue team put in an excellent performance showing great team work and batting skills. They finished second in their league.
New Mills Red team also showed great team work, especially in fielding through the partnership of Nathan Lees at Backstop and Harvey Smith at First Post. Henry Stevenson was a fantastic team captain who bowled skilfully and consistently throughout the tournament. Other great performances from Amy Race, Annabel Benson and Oscar Ash. New Mills Red team were also placed second in their league.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and we were unable to play the final games in the tournament due to the driving snow – summer term??? New Mills Blue were due to play New Mills Red in the play off for 3rd place – this match has been rescheduled for some time in the next few weeks.
