Friday 13th is usually unlucky for some – but not for the Gillespie cricket team!

After  year 6 decided to celebrate the end of SATs with their class, some noble year 4&5’s stood in to be the new Gillespie cricket team. We trained for 4 lunchtimes and they made great progress.

In our group we had Sacred Heart and Pakeman. We had played Pakeman before and knew they had some strong batters. Our first game was against Sacred Heart where we won by 56 runs.

The next game against Pakeman was much closer but again we triumphed by 12 runs which meant we topped the group and were through to the final.

In the finals we met our good friends St John’s Highbury Vale. We were in bat first and got off to a great start with James getting 20 in the first over. From then on our run rate slowed – we were batting well but just couldn’t get the runs. We ended with 32 which is not a huge target to chase. St John’s went into bat and although we bowled well lady luck wasn’t on our side. St John’s went on to win by 12 runs. We were delighted with our silver medals (we were also given our trophy from last year….better late than never!)

The bowling, fielding and batting were fantastic on the day – especially Zac and Rufus who are just year 4. Well done to all. And a huge well done and thanks to James Grinham for being an outstanding cricketer – I have learnt a lot from him since I’ve been at Gillespie.
