Horton is in good form

DERBYSHIRE Women have recently suffered two close cricketing defeats.

The first occurred against Hertfordshire by 20 runs and the other was against Gloucestershire, where the margin of defeat was three runs.

Charlotte Horton, of Darley Dale CC, continued her good form, scoring 69 and 68 in the two games.

The Derbyshire Women’s cricket side is a young team with several under 17s and under 15s players. It is hoped that, with experience, the team will be able to form a strong side.
