Batsmen have Georgia on their minds
DON'T ever take the Alstonville Maroon Under-12 cricket team lightly!
In particular, try not to face the bowling of the Maroon's Georgia Redmayne.
This is a young lady with a cricketing distinction which 99 per cent of the sport's trundlers will never achieve.
On Saturday at the Gap Road ground, near Alstonville, Georgia recorded a double hat-trick.
For the uninitiated, that's four deliveries for four wickets.
Bowling first change, Georgia's second over produced the following:
- Third ball ... batsman caught in the gully;
- fourth ball ... lofted into the safe hands of the covers fieldsman;
- fifth ball ... caught and bowled;
- sixth ball ... clean bowled.
At this stage the Bears were 4-10.
Georgia bowled another over later in the game and snared another wicket (clean bowled) to finish with five wickets from three overs, including two maidens and just one run conceded.
It doesn't stop there for the Alstonville Maroon Under-12s. They also feature three other talented girls ? Izzy Malcolm, Mattese Lliffe and Camille Oeding ? who all bowled well in this particular game.
In fact, the girls claimed all the wickets for the team.
The girls enjoy their cricket and are ably supported and appreciated by their seven male team-mates.
Georgia Redmayne has represented North Coast PSSA cricket team in two State carnivals.
She has honed her skills in the backyard, playing against her elder brother James, who now plays first grade for Alstonville.
