On a very windy morning 11 teams arrived at Whittlesford Cricket Club to compete in the Yr 3/4 Kwik Cricket competition. The teams were split in to 4 groups. Kwik cricket is very inclusive with each team member having to bowl 1 over per match and bat for 2 overs as well as field and cheer on everybody!
The winners of each pool were Fulbourn A, William Westley, St Matthew’s and Shirley. Semi-finals were played which saw some very good bowling, batting, fielding and even some flying catches! The winners of the semi-finals were William Westley and Fulbourn A. Both teams then played each other in the final. This was a very hard fought game but the eventual winners were Fulbourn A who prevented William Westley from winning the title for the third year in a row. Well done to them! They received gold medals and William Westley took silver medals.
The runners up of the semi-finals were St Matthew’s and Shirley. Shirley unfortunately had to get back to school leaving St Matthew’s to claim the bronze medals.
Congratulations to all the children that took part from William Westley, Fulbourn x2, Shirley, Milton Road, St Philip’s, The Grove, St Laurence, Orchard Park, Park Street and St Matthew’s. They showed great sportsmanship, applauding good play and cheering each other on.
St Laurence won The Spirit of the Games award for respect.
