A smart turn out for girls

The Norfolk girls turned out in style for the start of the 2011 season.

They were dressed in new kit for their first match, against Suffolk at Bungay and Waveney Valley.

The first and second-team outfits were paid for by money raised for the Norfolk girls, who attract the generous support of ladies' sections in the county.

Both teams were beaten but their performance encouraged county junior organiser Carol Delf.

She said: 'It was a good match for the start of the season.

'Suffolk proved stronger over the closing stages and edged their way to a win over the final holes.'

Gabriella Masding, of Royal Norwich, who was making her debut for the first-team, secured a point, while Juliet Fenton (King's Lynn) halved.
