Cricket: Ladies teams take to the field

For the first time ever, Redlynch & Hale C.C. fielded a Ladies Hardball team , captained by Emily Otton.  At its inaugural match in Portsmouth, the team narrowly missed out on a victory by just 3 runs, with a half century from Rhiannon Webb and 3 wickets for Katie Sell. The  Ladies Softball group also continues to be very popular, although new members are welcome. Girls (of at least 12 years of age) as well as the adults can play in the league matches, so if you've got a hankering to see what it's all about, drop by Redlynch Playing fields on a Monday 6:30 - 8:00pm and have a taster.

The 3rd XI have started with a victory for new skipper Andy Kennedy, taking over after many years of service from Ian Coffin who has stepped down. A huge thank you to Ian, who continues to look after and prepare the strip at Hatchet Green, Hale as well as undertaking his duties as the club's Welfare Officer.
