North Yorkshire Cricket Finals


On Tuesday it was an absolute privilege to take the Year 4 cricket team to the North Yorkshire Finals. We represented Dunnington Primary School with true resilience, great fighting spirit and superb behaviour. We faced a strong Saltburn side in our first league match and lost 96 to 72 but this didn’t deter us and the team then went onto win their second league game against a Scarborough side 134 to 42. This meant we went through to the semi-finals based on our run rate being so good across all 3 leagues. We unfortunately lost our semi-final match to a team from Harrogate but played out for 3rd and 4th place. The children and supporters were full of confidence and were determined this one was ours! It went right down to the last ball and we needed 6 off the last ball!!! A six was scored by W and we all cheered with excitement! 3rd in North Yorkshire on a very hot day is a fabulous result.

Well done to A, E, L, S, J, S, W, and T who took part and a huge thank you to the parents/grandparents who supported the children. A brilliant day! Mrs RowntreeMrs Rowntree
