This Sunday, the final full round of matches will be played in the Women’s Premier League. With everything to play for, as Royal High Corstorphine and Edinburgh South/Stew Mel top the table with 32 points each. There are no easy games, with RHC taking on last year’s league winners Carlton and Edinburgh South/Stew Mel facing last year’s Scottish Cup winners George Watson’s College.
RHC are at full strength, even though the academic year is over for most university students, players have made themselves available to play. With tremendous support from club members in previous matches, there is likely to be a decent crowd again on Sunday at Peffermill.
Edinburgh South/Stew Mel, with their mix of youth and experience will host the young George Watson’s College team at Inch Park. With former Wildcat Kathryn White and player/coach Hannah Short from Tasmania leading the team and young Catherine Fraser (Scotland u17), Edinburgh South/Stew Mel look favourites on paper but George Watson’s College beat RHC earlier in the season, which shows they are capable of beating any team.
With 10 points for a win, if both teams win, they will be joint winners of the 2018 WPL.
We are set for exciting Super Sunday of Women’s Premier League cricket!
