The Broderick Cup is a girls’ cricket tournament held by Queen’s College in Taunton. Developed 14 years ago by Head Girl Flo Broderick, the competition started out with just three teams. Now with 12 teams taking part, the competition really does demonstrate the popularity of the sport among girls.

Playing for three competitions, the Cup, the Plate and the Shield, our girls lost only one game all day and came away as the winners of the Plate Competition.

As the competition progressed, our girls got better and better.

Commenting, Head of Cricket, Rob Woodman said: “Abbie Stride was our stand out performer, hitting over 80 runs throughout the day and this included having to retire at 20 in each game. She also managed to hit her first ever 6, something she did twice! Everyone bowled and we even shared the wicket keeping. It really was a superb day, with some excellent cricket being played, and a real sense of teamwork and enjoyment all round.”
