We Don't Like Cricket... We LOVE it!

On Thursday, a selection of our Year 5 and 6 girls had a unique sporting opportunity: to meet a female sports icon! In return, they had to participate in a friendly festival of cricket where they would play against other school teams whilst receiving some focused coaching and support from a number of experts.

The girls were awe-struck to meet England Women's Cricket Captain Charlotte Edwards, who also took the time to talk to the girls and sign a few jerseys too. The event served as a bit of an open event for the Cam Cricket Club all weather net facility it has recently installed, offering excellent sporting opportunities for youngsters in the area come rain or shine. The girls had a great time and this event was a great warm-up to the ASDA Kwik Cricket festivals to be held next month.

Special thanks to Mrs Jones for picking the team and making the necessary arrangements as well as the devoted help of the invaluable Mrs Bates!
