Haringey’s girls cricket team have joined their male counterparts in making it through to next month’s London Youth Games indoor cricket finals at Lords.

The borough team beat 2013 runners-up Ealing as well as Croydon and Brent to win their qualifying group at Harrow Leisure Centre and clinch their place alongside seven other borough teams at the home of cricket on Sunday March 2.

Haringey team manager Martin Issitt said: “I was very pleased. They started a little bit slowly – not surprisingly with an 8.30am start – but they got into their first game, which was very close and went to three balls from the end, and improved as the morning went on.

“They are a young team and it was really good to see that they benefited from the experience. The important thing is they love the game, and they are already excited about the finals.

“We knew Ealing were likely to be a strong team as second seeds. Historically we have done well, but there was a gap before the younger players started coming through.

“We didn’t qualify last year – they were largely the same girls but they were a little bit frozen in the headlights. We will do our best in the final – this is a team for the future.”

The indoor cricket competitions feature competitors in Year 8 or younger. It is one of 33 sports in the 2014 Balfour Beatty London Youth Games – Europe’s largest annual youth sports event.
