NORTHERN NINJAS TAKE WOMEN'S INDOOR TITLE IN FINAL THRILLER

Following 3 weeks of Group games and Finals Days qualification, the 2020 Indoor Title was decided in a tense and dramatic final. Defending Champions Firwood Bootle Belles won the toss and decided to field. Very keen bowling and out-cricket saw them restrict Ninjas to 220 with Hannah Gallimore the pick of the bowlers.

 

At the halfway point. the Belles were favourite to lift the trophy for a second year. Good tight bowling, and 2 wickets falling in the 3rd over, saw them fall short by 4 runs giving rise to ecstatic scenes in the Ninja camp. Earlier, the Belles had won all 3 of their games to go through to the final whilst Ninjas confirmed their place with a 16 run victory over Colwyn Bay.

 

Third place went to Colwyn Bay who defeated Liverpool in the Third Place Play Off.

 

Congratulations to Eleanor Sinker from Northern Ninjas who is the first women recipient of our Player of the Tournament Award sponsored by ICON Sports. Eleanor's superb bowling helped her team become Liverpool Comp Indoor Women's Champions on 8th March at Toxteth Firefit in Liverpool. She returned tournament figures of 8-54 at an average of 6.75.
