Year 6 Countdown Cricket Tournament

On Thursday we experienced our first tournament win of the year when our Year 6 boys team won the Countdown Cricket Open Event at Camborne Cricket Club. The boys won all four matches, increasing their margin of victory with each game played, and have now qualified for the County finals, which are being held at Truro Cricket Club next Wednesday. The boys improved in all areas throughout the day with their fielding impressing in particular.

We also took a Year 6 girls team to the tournament and despite most of the players having very little experience, they showed themselves to be quick learners. The girls came third overall and were commended by the organisers for their outstanding team spirit – from the first ball of the day to the last they constantly encouraged and directed one another and this made a huge difference to their performance.

Both teams performed brilliantly and can be very proud of their efforts.
