TEENAGE bowler Lizzie Scott made quite an impact while representing Northumberland U15.

She made mincemeat out of an impressive Yorkshire side, taking six wickets for just five runs in the match at Blagdon Park.

Scott clean bowled five of her victims, and trapped another LBW, as Yorkshire stuttered to a meagre total of just 72 all out.

There were also wickets for Emily Whiting, Katie Chomse, Harriet Robson, and Olivia Burnip.

Scott, who played for Matfen Hall’s senior first team in their West Tyne League Division One victory over Hexham Leazes on Saturday, didn’t fare so well with the bat.

Coming in at number three for the county side, she was bowled for just two runs. But thanks to her bowling exploits, her work was already done.

Opener Ciara Boaden was 43 not out, and Robson was 18 undefeated, as Northumberland comfortably reached 76-2 to win the ECB County Championship U15 A Division Group One match.

It’s not the first time this year that Scott’s bowling has caught the eye. Earlier in the season, she took a five-wicket haul for the senior Northumberland team against Scotland. The Northumberland U15 side includes several local youngsters, with Boaden, Robson, and Chomse, all playing ladies’ cricket at Corbridge.

Scott’s older brother Tom (17), is playing for Allendale’s senior team in the Northumberland and Tyneside League this season.

Proud mum Lisa said: “It was quite something to watch Lizzie bowling the way she did. The conditions were ideal and once she got into her rhythm there was no stopping her.”

Scott, who is a pupil at Hexham’s Queen Elizabeth High School, is one of several members of the county U15 team who attend the regional development centre based at Durham Cricket Club. Lisa added: “We’ve got a lot of talented young women playing cricket in this area.

“It’s pleasing to see them turning out in the West Tyne League. They are proving that they can cut against the men. As well as aiding their development as cricketers, it is also benefitting the clubs and growing the game.”
