Introductionblank

    Cricket Club meets after School every week during the Summer Term, building towards the annual Stevenage Cricket Festivals, which are hosted by Stevenage Cricket Club. We have reached the final of the mixed event three times in the last five years, and have also represented Stevenage at the Herts Youth Games, taking on some of the best Year 6 players in Hertfordshire. Two years ago, the competition was expanded to include a Girls Tournament for the first time, with our squad (pictured below) winning the event undefeated, and going on to represent the town at the County finals!

    We play Kwik Cricket, a faster-paced version of the game that features plastic bats and balls (so no need for pads), but still follows all the usual cricket rules, and we spend lots of time perfecting our over-arm bowling and fielding skills. We regularly link-up with coaches from Stevenage Cricket Club and Hertfordshire Cricket through the Chance to Shine programme, and have been delighted to see several of our players invited to join (and play for) Stevenage CC as a result.

  • Stevenage Cricket Festival
  • Taking on 16 teams from across town, we showed an impressively high level of skill throughout our matches, with all 24 players making a contribution. Our C team finished third in their group, narrowly losing their playoff in the afternoon, while our B team, captained by George R, only lost one group game (against the eventual champions, Giles), and reached the Plate Final, where they were unlucky to lose out to St Ippolyts. Finally, our A team, captained by Cristiano, made it to the semi-finals, thanks to some hugely impressive team performances. In the semi-final (where we faced Codicote, who had beaten us in last year’s final), Cristiano got us off to an amazing start with 2 wickets in the first over. We bowled well, but under pressure from tough opposition, we made a few mistakes while batting and narrowly lost out, finishing 3rd overall.

  • Rapid Fire Cricket
  • In January, our team of Year 4 cricketers attended the Stevenage Sporting Futures Rapid Fire Cricket Tournament at Barnwell School. Last term, we developed our skills in after-school Cricket Club with Mr Humber, improving our hitting and catching skills and learning to field as a team, so we could play this all-new sport to the best of our abilities.

    We played four group games, winning three and only losing out to the eventual winners, St Ippolyts. As a result, we reached the semi-final, where we lost narrowly and finally finished third overall. The team played extremely well and showed their superior bating skills, but on the day our fielding wasn’t as good as it had been in practice. We received a certificate and bronze medals for finishing third in Stevenage, and are now looking forward to a cricket match against St Ippolyts in the summer term.
