ECB XI crowned European champions again

ECB Development XI sealed another successful European Championship in Netherlands, and their captain Jenny Halstead was named Player of the Tournament.

England won all three of their matches, comfortably too, with Halstead setting the tone in the opening match, against hosts Netherlands, with 112. Her Cheshire team-mate Dawn Prestidge chipped in with two wickets as Netherlands could only muster 105 in response to England's 256 for 4.

They then overcame Ireland by 69 runs, and Scotland by nine wickets having rolled them for 87 to complete another emphatic campaign.
