On Tuesday, our Cricket team competed in the Hounslow Borough Finals, a competition they had previously qualified for. This was a terrific achievement to qualify for these finals and a great opportunity for the boys to test their skills against the other top schools in the borough. On the day, the team was placed in a group of four, where only the group winners would qualify for the semi-finals. Unfortunately, we finished as close runners up and bowed out of the competition, but this does not do justice to how well this team performed. The team won two out of their three matches, 92-54 and 107-34 respectively, with some amazing batting, bowling and fielding skills on show. The only loss came against the eventual group winners, who only secured a close victory during the final over.
This team should be very proud of their efforts; the skills and teamwork they showcased throughout the competition was remarkable. For a team that have limited experience of cricket, to compete against the top cricket schools in the borough, is a real achievement and is testament to the effort and determination they have showed in recent weeks, during P.E. lessons and after-school training sessions. Well done boys!
