Another fantastic day of cricket, this time for our Year 5 team. Some pupils from our Y5/6 team represented us once again with new additions from our Monday after school club.
The team, managed by Mr. Southworth, performed brilliantly, topping their group after beating Leamington (281), Windsor (275) and Holy Family. Into the knock out rounds and the team posted their highest score to date, beating All Saints (310) to face Lister in the quarter-finals.
Lister were beaten (279) to set up a semi-final clash vs. Childwall C of E. A relatively low score of 239 was enough to win, pitting us against St Vincent de Paul in the day’s final.
Unfortunately, the team ran out of steam, narrowly missing out on a place in the County Finals, held in Preston, next week.
A fantastic effort from the whole team made Mr. Southworth, and the rest of the school, extremely proud. With the success of the Year 6 and Year 5 teams this year, hopefully this will inspire many more of our pupils to take up cricket with a local club.
