Our Under 13 Cricketers strike again! On the day when the England men’s team were being soundly beaten by Pakistan in the Champions Trophy semi-final in Cardiff, our team were battling their way to become Wirral Under-13 Outdoor Cricket Champions.
In the preliminary matches held in May, the team beat The Kingsway Academy, Pensby High School, Bebington High Sports College, and Upton Hall School.
Mr Taylor, Manager and teacher of Humanities, reports that, in the second leg of the competition held at Wallasey Cricket Club, we defeated Kingsway twice in the ‘final’. We won the first game by 50 runs and the second by 68 runs in which Kingsway were all out for 9.
Congratulations to our run-making, wicket-taking, team of: Freya (Captain), Lily, Cora, Mollie May, Jess, Amy, Eloise, Keira and Lillie. On the day, Amy was the top run scorer and Keira the top wicket taker.
Their efforts mean that they have qualified to play in the Cheshire finals on 3rd July – good luck everyone!
