Harpenden Cricket Club threw open its doors for a first ever girls’ festival to be held on the Common – and organisers hailed it an instant success.
In total seven teams, made up from six Hertfordshire cricket clubs and consisting of nearly 60 players, took part in the event.
The teams battled through nine games to provide a finishing table and two finalists.
Fittingly the two teams fighting it out for the crown were the two Huskies sides from the host club.
It brought family rivalry into sharp relief with sisters from more than one family finding themselves on opposite sides.

But in the end the A team got the better of their younger rivals by 49 runs with Holly Glynn-Davies and Amelia Cloake taking the most valuable player awards for either side.
The other teams involved were Berkhamsted, Flamstead, Herts All Stars (a mixed team), Abbots Langley and Grand Union, a combination of the Hemel Hempstead Town and Boxmoor clubs.
