Ulverston cricket tournament

On Wednesday, 16 Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in the annual cricket tournament at Ulverston Leisure Centre. We were able to send two teams of 8 this year and they both had 3 games each.

Team 2 played superbly in their first game and took 9 brilliant catches. Alysha took the first catch which set off a chain of fine takes from Sam and Harry. Their second game was extremely competitive and they had to keep their cool all the way through. Because of some extremely accurate bowling from Ryan and Daniel, they just won this game and went on to win their third game thanks to some power hitting from the middle order batsman: Isaac, Rhi and Braden.

Team 1 won both of their first two matches and were eager to share scores and success with the other team. Fine catches were also taken here and balls sailed across the boundary regularly. Their final match was against a brilliant Low Furness side and they just lost this final effort.

We go to Barrow next for the county qualifiers in June. It will be very hard picking a group of 8 out of this great group of players. Thanks to Mr Quint and his Year 10s for organising this event. Well done to all the other teams who took part.
