Clifton Hill Women's XI with the Lenore Smith Shield

Clifton Hill Cricket Club congratulates our Women's XI on winning the Lenore Smith Shield and making history as the first CHCC women's team to win a trophy for the club! Thanks to our sponsors, coach and supporters for a fantastic first season.


 Final scores: Clifton Hill 5/130 (Claire Williamson 40, Jacqui Kinder 13, Jules Cole 12*) defeated Dennis 10/84 (Claire Williamson 4/8, Stephanie Spillsbury 2/11, Karen Dreher 1/11, Jacqui Kinder 1/15). Great fielding and great catching. Three catches behind the wicket to Jules Cole and catches to Stephanie Spillsbury, Karen Dreher and an absolute beauty by Claire Burns to dismiss the Dennis marquee player for 12. Go Hillers!  Full scores at: MyCricket
