Dorset County Cadets

Last Saturday the Dorset County Cadet (under 15) 1st and 2nd teams played their first fixtures of the season.

The 1st team, which included Jess Moggeridge, played at The Grange School in Christchurch. Jess won 4 out of her 6 matches. The full results were

9-1 win against Essex

5-5 draw against Surrey

6-4 win against Middlesex

The 2nd team, including Jed Brackenridge, Edith Dedman and Ella Stanton, played at Haygrove School, Bridgwater. The team also included Bournemouth players Ewan Turner and Sam Taylor. All of the players contributed points in an excellent performance against other counties 1st teams. The full results were

6-4 defeat to Gloucestershire

6-4 win against Somerset

7-3 win against Wiltshire

It was an excellent day for both county teams. It is good to see younger players such as Jed, Ewan and Sam coming through, gaining valuable experience and giving the county optimism for the future. Particularly pleasing is the improved performance of the girls in the 2 squads, showing the value of the extra girl’s squad training that Rowden Fullen has been running in Weymouth.

Dorset County Juniors – October 21st

Good luck to Jamie Blair and Rosa Mckechnie who play for the Dorset County junior team (under 18) next weekend.

All players are welcome to join us from 11.30am to 1pm at All Saints School. The competition is played in a ladder format guaranteeing a challenging standard of play for all abilities. New players can come in and join at any time and the coaches will place new players in a sensible position based on the Weymouth coaches recommendation.
