Essex Women’s gifted Under 18s convincingly beat the North East Warriors at Grantham Cricket Club to book their spot in the final against Devon.

Winning the toss and electing to field, scoring was hard to come by for the North East Warriors as Jasmine Westley and Sally Chapman kept the run rate low. However, Hollie Dring-Richardson was the pick of the bowlers as she returned figures of 4/18 off her 4 overs.

With 123 the target off the 40 overs, Essex got off to a steady start with Sally Champman’s 33 (80) being crucial in the chase of the low score. Even magnificent figures of 3/21 off 8 overs, couldn’t change the outcome as Essex reached the total in just under 30 overs to round up a 4-wicket victory.
