Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Cricket Final

On Thursday 30th June the year 5/6 boys cricket team played in the county final tournament at St. Cross cricket ground in Winchester. A first for Great Binfields to reach this stage of the competition, what an achievement in itself. There were 15 schools there from all across Hampshire who had won their district competition so the standard was extremely high. The boys absolutely played their hearts out, winning their first match comfortably. The second match was lost by 6 runs, a good close match that challenged us and made sure we were on our toes. We then won the final match in our group securing us a place in the quarter finals. With a plethora of parents there to support, the quarter final was a nail biting experience, especially for myself and Mr Wood who could only watch from outside the boundary. Captain Cian stepped up directing his team and along with everyone, made sensible decisions. Unfortunately we lost by 3 runs. The opposition playing a really smart game with nothing we could do. The closeness of the final result shows how well matched the teams were and how deserving the GB boys were to get to that stage. Well done to everyone and a big thankyou to the parents for coming along to support.
