Cricket Tournament Friday 17th May
We played at Swindon Cricket Club. The players were Alex, Harrison E, Harrison W, Lucy, Phoebe, Ciaran, Morgan, Meo and Me. In our 1st match we played St Nick's, unfortunately we lost.
In our 2nd match we played St Benedicts and we won quite easily.
The 3rd match Blakeley Heath. When we were batting Harrison E hit 4 sixes in 4 balls. The game went to the last over which I bowled and we managed to stop them getting the runs so we won again.
In our last match against St Chad's we had to win to keep us in the tournament. We batted 1st and everyone got lots of runs, then we bowled well to win the game.
At the end of this match all the schools had to sit down and the winners were announced. We finished 2nd out of all the schools behind St Nick's, meaning we go through to the District Finals. We are very proud as this is the first time ever for our school. Well done everyone.

Mr Dobson and I were very proud of the School Cricket Team. Our school was praised for our resilience after losing the first game. Callum made a great captain.
Congratulations everyone! C. Hopkins
