It was a pleasure to take a fairly raw group of Year Five cricketers to the annual Oratory Cricket Tournament this afternoon.
This is one of the bigger events in the area and usually draws a good number of primary school teams – often with established Club players.
Our team of Lucas T, Joe W, Joe M, Ben A, Sam A, Max H, Edward H-K and Will J did not all count themselves as regular cricketers, and indeed were not necessarily amongst the best individuals, but as a team they proved themselves unbeatable and with a 100% record lifted the trophy! Huge credit is due to them all, and to see them bond so well with each other, encourage each other unquestioningly, and reap the rewards was very satisfying. It is fair to make special mention only of Lucas who captained the team with great style and focus – but everyone played their part.
Please see below for a couple of pictures from the event.
With many thanks to Ms Brett, Mrs Killick, and Mr Winpenny for transport and support, and to Mrs Rae for Y6 cover.General
