Jasmine Liddell hit three off the final ball to earn Highbury Grove’s Under-15 team joint second place in the Middlesex girls’ competition at Finchley.

Highbury Grove faced tough opposition in their first two games, against Paddington and Stoke Newington and, despite impressive performances from Seren Ahmet and Annie Azzopardi, they were edged out in both.

However, the Highbury Grove girls responded well in their final match, fielding first and restricting opponents Central Foundation to 47.

The scores were tied with one ball remaining, but Liddell slammed it to the ceiling to secure victory for her side.
