Our year 5 and 6 girls took part in the Derwentside cricket tournament on Tuesday 23rd May at Shotley Bridge C.C. The girls won their first three games easily which qualified them for a semi final against Ebchester. Some really good bowling saw them take 6 wicket and winning by 30 runs. In the final they played St Mary's a good batting side who posted a very good score, the girls batted very well but were beaten by 18 runs. Well done to all the girls who did their best and were so close to winning.
