CLITHEROE Cobras Girls’ CC had an extra special reason to celebrate Lancashire Girls’ Under 13s winning the National Championship as they were very well represented.

Saphina Stamford, Eleanor Graham and Nicole Harvey (pictured with the trophy, s) all played crucial roles in the tense quarter final and semi final victories against Middlesex and Yorkshire respectively, culminating with the defeat of Hampshire in the Final.

Cobras Girls head coach Bill Smith was full of praise for his charges: “The girls have worked extremely hard this season and it is fitting reward for all their efforts.

“It has been an amazing 12 months for the girls as they have only recently started to play the game.

“Hopefully they will go on and achieve more successes for the Cobras and Lancashire.

“We may even see one of them in England colours one day!”
