Miss Phillips: May 2016
What a fantastic way to end the first summer half term! On Thursday 26th May, Wrenbury's cricket team were invited to play against 3 other schools at Cholmondeley Cricket Club — a beautiful setting for a match!
Our team of both year 5 and 6 pupils included captain Will, Harry, Alfie, Charlie, Ollie, Aoife, Ben and Adam. They all pulled together as a team, rotating on and off and taking turns to bat and bowl.
The first match was against the Whitehouse, which we won with a great score of 249. due to our initial success the team then played in the final against the other winning team, Tushingham Primary School. It was an excellent game and we won the final with a score of 296 (Tushingham scored 224)!
Aoife was our superstar of the team; she bowled multiple wickets, bowling other members of the other team out! Harry scored a fantastic 35 runs! Our wicket keepers did a superb job, when it came to catching the players out. All the players should be extremely proud of themselves for how well they performed together. They even managed to celebrate with a burger off the barbeque! Every child was awarded with a medal and we got a trophy to bring back to school!
WELL DONE Wrenbury Cricket team — I look forward to next year!
Big thank yous are given to the organisers and umpires from Cholmondeley Cricket Club; Mrs Winward for supporting with the organisation; Mrs May for stepping in as our team coach (she did a fabulous job) and all the other parents who came to support the children.
