Oxford CC Women’s 1st XI vice-captain, Genny Porter, sporting her well-worn and much-loved Oxford CC cap, played on the main ground at Lord’s on Tuesday 24th April for the MCC Marylebone Maidens, in the Lord’s MCC Women’s Day. The day was a celebration and showcase of Women’s cricket, held at Lord’s in front of about 5,000 school children. In the opposing team was her sister, Eloise. Fortunately, the game aligned with Genny coming out to bat to face her sister’s bowling, however she couldn’t hit the runs required to help her team set a defendable score. Genny and Eloise played all of their youth cricket at Oxford CC, for both the boys and girls teams from the U10s to adult level.
Oxford CC Women are looking forward to their inaugural game hosting the MCC Women at Jordan Hill on Friday July 6th.
