Nottinghamshire win the English County Finals
Nottinghamshire are the new English Women's County Champions, winning the title for the first time - with a match in hand.
The county triumphed when they won their fourth match of the week at County Finals and Buckinghamshire did them the favour of defeating challengers Lancashire. The team spent anxious moments in front of the scoreboard checking and rechecking points before erupting into cheers. Their captain Kathryn Horberry beamed broadly as she said: "It's absolutely fantastic!"
This is Nottinghamshire's first appearance at County Finals since 2000 - when Kathryn, an eight times county champion, was in the team. Her players have invited her to tee it up in tomorrow's final match against Essex but she has declined "I don't want headlines saying county captain loses 8/7," she laughed. She's also determined that her team goes all out for their fifth win of the week. "We will definitely be trying, we want to beat everyone," she said.
