Victory for Year 7/8 cricket team in Trust tournament

Victory for Year 7/8 cricket team in Trust tournament
The team and Mr Shorrock in the Twenty20 dug-out.
Friday 17th June 2016 by C. Freeman

Well done to our Year 7 and 8 boys cricket team that has won the first Trust cricket tournament that was held at the County ground in Northampton. All five of the Brooke Weston Trust secondary schools competed for the trophy.

Head of PE Neil Shorrock said: ‘It was a smashing day, they showed us around the ground and made us feel very welcome. We played matches on the outfield of the actual cricket ground. We played two preliminary matches in our group and beat KSA. We got 84 and bowled them out for 14. We played CTS and bowled them out for 17 and got the runs fairly rapidly. We played CBA in the final. They were 49 and we got the runs only losing one wicket. We got a trophy that we handed out in assembly.

‘The boys showed outstanding teamwork and the skill level was high. There were seven Year 7s and five Year 8s in the team and they were all-round enthusiastic. It was their first outing as a team and it was a really nice day and we even managed to dodge the rain!’
