Our boys were involved in a Wirral cricket tournament on 9th May 2016 which took place at Irby Cricket Club. All other schools involved are mainstream and we were grouped with St Mary's Wallasey and Pensby.
In the first game against St Mary's our boys restricted the opponents to 64 but were unable to chase down the total due to a combination of many factors including some excellent bowling from the opposition.
In the second game against Pensby, the boys were re-invigorated and bowled and fielded excellently to restrict the opposition to 52. A wicket first ball of the run chase did not bode well but, with excellent batting from Henry and Chris, we managed to chase down the total with 2 balls to spare. A great win against a fantastically sporting opponent whose staff and students were quick to congratulate the boys.
A third game against Pensby produced the champagne moment pictured as young Dennis in year 7 made his hard ball cricket debut and finished 3 not out in another successful game.
Thanks to Cheshire Cricket Board and our opponents for an excellent afternoon, also Irby Cricket Club as fine hosts. We will have further games during the month of July and our girls will be involved in their own upcoming tournament. Thanks also to Mr White for his constant support and encouragement throughout.
