Cricket team finish runners up in Area Finals

A gilt edged performance today saw our cricketers finish runners up in the area Kwik Cricket finals held at North Petherton Cricket Club. Winning all of their group games and finishing top of their pool, the boys went on to play against Somerset Bridge (a school over twice the size of ours) in the final. A closely fought game saw the boys narrowly miss out on victory by just 16 runs. Bowling, fielding and batting improved with each game and considering the majority of the team have only just been introduced to competitive cricket this week, this achievement is even more extraordinary. A huge well done to William, Sam, Samuel, Leo, Isaac, Archie, Adam and James. You all played some magnificent cricket (the catch taken by Sam in the final game of the afternoon was like something you would expect to see at Lords in a 20/20 final)!!! The school (and Mr Fisher) are very proud of you all!
