North London’s women showed their class at the weekend with an excellent win over Hertfordshire’s Development team.
Roxy Morison led the Crouch End-based club to a 10-wicket success after chasing down a total of 137 with little fuss.
The visitors batted first and Maia Harris (3-14) and Caitlin Deacock (2-20) did the main damage for the North London women on a baking hot day.
Emma Williets, Jess Cattley and Layla Colley also chipped in with wickets, though Hertfordshire’s Dilly Larkins did offer resistance and hit an unbeaten 57, but it only set 138 for victory.

She praised North London women’s display, the captain said: “I thought the girls did brilliantly to keep going in the field in such oppressive conditions and Maia then showed us all just how well she can bat.
“Women’s cricket at North London Cricket Club is certainly on the up. The squad continues to grow, although we are still keen to add new players no matter what their experience.
“Getting regular use of the club’s main square is also fantastic and demonstrates the increase in profile of the women’s game at North London CC.”
