Y5 Girls Cricket Final - 2nd Best in Sheffield!

posted 26 Jun 2017, 09:12 by Richard Hanks
A fantastic day of Cricket was had today at the Sheffield Hallam Sports ground organised by Sheffield City Cricket Club.

After the Y5 girls won the South Sheffield competition last week, they swiftly progressed to the city final today. The standard of play obviously increased significantly and the team were up to the challenge. They qualified from their group and progressed through the quarter-final and semi-final to the overall final, where we met our old nemesis Greenhill, who won out.

The girls were disappointed at this last result, but incredibly proud that they are the second best cricket side in Sheffield!

They were a super team, who organised themselves brilliantly and supported and encouraged each other in exactly the right way. they recognised good play from any team and enjoyed their special day. All of them have made excellent progress since coming together as a team just a few short weeks ago. Well done Y5 girls!

A big thanks to the parents who supported with lifts, snacks, tips and encouragement at very short notice.
