Cricketing News

The Y3/4 cricket team had a fantastic afternoon at Dunnington cricket club in the inter schools’ tournament. The children were a real credit to themselves and to the school, showing great teamwork, encouragement and sportsmanship throughout. In their first match they played Stockton on the Forest and finished with a comprehensive win 133 runs to 38. In their second and final match vs Hempland the game was much more even. Again, the boys and girls fielded really well and did brilliantly to come out as winners in a very close match ending 87 to 86! They now progress to the regional finals on Tuesday 21st June at York Cricket Club. A huge thank you to Mr Robinson for coaching and looking after the team.

The Y5/6 cricket team also took part in the York cricket finals at Dunnington Cricket Club on Wednesday. The boys all represented our school with a fabulous display of skills, teamwork and sportsmanship. We played 3 games in the qualifying round and beat Badger Hill, Hempland and Naburn very convincingly. Wickets were taken through excellent bowling and superb fielding, including a few diving catches! We then faced Osbaldwick in the semi -final and again, showed true team spirit with a good win! This meant we faced Naburn in the final and with some superb action on the field and great support from parents, we won and are through to the Regional finals. A super day and so nice to be back enjoying competitive sport against other schools!
