Basingstoke Cricket Competition
On Thursday, 16 children from across KS2 travelled to May’s Bounty to take part in the Basingstoke Cricket competition.
Our two teams were split into two different groups, where they had to play against three other schools. Our A team managed to win two and lose one of their matches, which meant they progressed to the semi-finals. Here they played Cliddesden, and in a really good match eventually managed to win by 26 runs. This meant they progressed to the final, where they had a re-run of their group stage match against St Mary’s. The final was a much closer affair, with St Mary’s eventually winning by 28 runs, this meant we finished as runners-up and the children all earned silver medals.
Our B team played some really good cricket, against teams that mainly contained much older children. After the group stage they went on to play in the plate competition where they managed one win and a defeat. All the children played some excellent cricket and we are really proud of their performances. Well done to all those involved
