A Year 5/6 cricket team took part in an ECB tournament at Rolleston Cricket Club on Tuesday afternoon. An excellent performance in our first match saw the team easily defeat Rykneld, having scored a massive total of 297, then restricting Rykneld to 189 with great bowling and fielding.
It was much closer in our second game, with Anglesey batting well and reaching 267, then fielding well to prevent us beating their total as we managed to get to 240.
Our excellent performance overall saw us progress to the quarter finals (the last 8 from 18 teams) where we were drawn against Williams Shrewsbury. With a much larger group of students to choose from, they were a very talented team with some quick bowlers and amazing fielders who took a number of spectacular one handed catches.
It was another fabulous afternoon proving that learning isn’t always academic – the teamwork, communication and sports skills were great and, as always, we were proud of our children and grateful to the parents who transported and watched for their support.
