On the 25th June, six pupils from Radipole class represented the school at the annual under 16’s Cricket competition, which was held at the wonderful location of Milton Abbey School in Blandford.
During the course of the day each school had a chance to receive quality coaching from the county cricket coaches as well as play in a competitive match against the other schools. Whilst playing in these matches each pupil had to take it in turns to bowl, field and bat.
After a slow start, losing the opening game by two runs, we went the rest of the competition unbeaten and overall came in second place with all the pupils receiving a silver medal.
This was an excellent achievement due to the great teamwork and pupils acting on the coach’s advice.
Special praise to the pupils who are now silver medallists in Cricket; Ben, Tim, Michael, Kieran, Chris and Nathan, well done!
