Having won the Islington cricket tournament, Gillespie went to the Regional Finals at the Play On sports Centre in Whitechapel on Tuesday 1st March.

We were in a group with Grasmere (Hackney) and Greenleaf (Waltham Forest.) During our warm up session we got to observe the other teams warming up too, where we found out that the other teams included children who played for Middlesex, Essex and East Essex county cricket clubs.

We played back to back matches against Greenleaf and Grasmere and sadly lost both of them. The level of play from the other teams was exceptional and a real eye opening experience for many of the team. It made us see the areas we are strong in (batting) and areas we need to work on (bowling.)

The team should be extremely proud of their achievements with cricket. We looked like a cricket team and although we lost both the matches, we played fantastically well but on the day we were beaten by 2 better teams. Well done: James (c), Sammy, Hetty, Naeema, Aisha, Katie, Tyler, Zac, Malik and Luca. You should be proud of yourselves.

I know that cricket is not the most popular sport, but there are clubs in our local area (Stoke Newington & North London Cricket Club) who would love to have some new players to train. If you want their details please let me know, I am happy to pass them on.
