Watlington duo help side to county victory
Published 19/05/14



TWO young cricketers from Watlington had the chance to represent the county.

Chloe Lenahan, of Stonor Green, and Laura Goulden, of Chestnut Place, took part in the match against Worcestershire which Oxfordshire won by 64 runs to 52.

Put into bat, Oxon found it hard to score runs on a damp wicket, but after losing three quick wickets, they reached a total of 64 for seven off their 25 overs.

In reply Worcestershire were up with the run rate before three batsmen were each out for zero. They ended their 25 overs on 56 for five.

Both girls, who are 11-years-old, attend Watlington Primary School and play at Aston Rowant Cricket Club.


Mum Amanda Lenahan said the pair had been doing indoor training all through the winter and the game, held earlier this month in Combe, north of Oxford, was their first county match in the 11 and under age bracket.

She added: “They were delighted. I’m very, very proud. It was fabulous at that level, that’s why it was such an honour for them to go there and represent the county.

“There were obviously a lot of girls that didn’t get in so when they realised they had been picked they were very proud.

“They all played well together and I hope they’ll play again. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, it was a beautiful day and a gorgeous village so it was all just perfect.

“Chloe absolutely loves it and it’s so nice to find a sport that they enjoy.”
