A magnificent performance today from our Cricket team saw them place 3rd in the County Cricket Finals held at Wembdon Cricket Club in Bridgwater. Representing the Sedgemoor Area, this team of 8 batted, bowled and fielded their way to a County bronze medal! In total, the team played 5 games against the best representatives from Somerset and North Somerset! They finished the day with three wins and two very narrow loses in what turned out to be a very close competition.
There were many highlights and some of the cricket on display was just brilliant! However, there was a magical incident that caught my eye in our penultimate game which highlights the empathetic nature and true spirit we look to endorse here at St Joseph's. An opposition player had been hit and hurt by the ball while batting and was 'out' and quite clearly distressed and in discomfort. The whole St Joseph's team were generally concerned and raced over to check that he was alright and proceeded to ask the umpire to disregard the wicket and replay the ball again.....that moment made me the proudest teacher in Somerset! The team deserved that bronze medal, but in my eyes they will always be winners, especially if they maintain such a positive approach to sport.
