SS: May 2017
Today 8 children took part in a Kwik Cricket Competition against 14 other schools at Crewe Vagrants Cricket Club. Playing 5 matches, in sharp contrast to the cold and wet of last week, everyone played fantastically well and did their part for the team. We had some great catches, great bowling and great hitting — all round great cricket played.
We won all of our group matches, which meant that we progressed to the semi-finals against Weaver. This was a close game but a great team performance by everyone ensured we progressed to the final. The final was against Pear Tree and this was another close game, in which everyone again did their part. Unfortunately, we couldn't quite get over the line as they had a secret weapon in a Cheshire County bowler, who bowled with some serious pace right at the end.
Thankfully, our stellar efforts were not in vain as both teams have progressed to the County Finals in Warrington on the 14th July! Well done everyone — you deserve it for how well you played!
A massive thank you to everyone who came to watch and support us in the sunshine and to all the children involved for sticking it out in the hot sun all afternoon until 6.30! Well done. You have done us proud once again!
Mr Sargeant :)
