Cricket – introduction of pre-school sessions and evening nets in the Spring term with Ex County player Alex Edwards. Alex played for Sussex, Derbyshire and Middlesex. Alex has also been coaching both boys and girls this year in games and after school practices as well as this years Mote Club international Matt Luksich. We are very lucky to have such expertise join our department. We have also seen the return of school cricket fixtures for boys and girls on Saturdays.The U13 Boys lead the way with a 3/5 win rate but all teams are improving every match and this sets us up well at the grassroots which was the aim this season. The cricket potential and future for both boys and girls is very exciting. In fact we end this week just before half term with two wins for the U15 boys and girls.
