The Drax Cup is an annual event and is aimed at developing kwik cricket skills in Y3/4 children. It is sponsored by Drax and organised by the Yorkshire Cricket Board. We have had Chance to Shine coaches in to school delivering 4 weeks of curriculum cricket sessions and the kids and teachers loved it! A lot of talented children were spotted!
The Drax team consisted of 10 children in total- 8 boys and 2 girls. It was held at Dunnington Cricket Club and the weather was hot and sunny…a perfect cricket type of day! The team worked hard and supported each other through every match. The children won all the matches they played, including the final and so are yet to take part in the North Yorkshire round next week. A superb day and many great memories made!
WE WON!!!! After 3 wins in the morning round, they went into the finals as winners of their group and then went onto to win the semi final and the final. A fantastic day of cricket and I was very proud of their teamwork, skill and support for each other.
They go on to play at Headingly and represent North Yorkshire in a tournament on the 8th July. They will be the warm up matches to a T20 match….it doesn’t get much better than that!!!
