Whitby’s Daisy Stokoe has been called up for Yorkshire Under-13s side for the Royal London County Cup finals at Grantham CC next week.

Wales were then bowled out for 117, Stokoe didn’t bowl.

Their second game was against favourites Kent and Yorkshire lost by two wickets.

Stokoe scored 16 in a total of 119 all out but Kent knocked them off.

Their last game was against Essex.

Stokoe didn’t bat as the Tykes notched up 175.

Essex were 77 all out and Stokoe bowled two of their batters and had one caught to take 3-16.
