Cricket reports from our players for the first games of the season.

U9 Boys v Hilden Grange: The man of the match was Barney because his fielding was great and he did well when he was batting. Austin's bowling improved throughout the match. Henry was trying hard to do some catches. The team played very well. Unfortunately, we lost by 20 runs but still a good start to the cricket season. Looking forward to the next match. Felix
U10/11B Boys v Steephill: We all played brilliantly against Steephill. The score was 299 to 219, to us. They had some very good fielders, so we had to try to hit more sixes and fours. Overall, everyone played very well. Logan

The team played really well for our first match of the season and Annabel was chosen as player of the match. Annabel
