March 2018: County final beckons for U13s cricketers

Our U13s girls’ cricket team, captained by Year 8 student Neve Harris-Summers, has won through to the county final. Neve also captains Brooksbottom Girls and the mixed Edenfield team.
She said: “At the regional final at Bolton Arena the schools were split into two groups and we won our group and then played the winning team from the other group.”
Although our school team lost in the final by just seven runs, the top two progress to the county final.
Charlotte Whalley, 13, said: “I like to bat and in one match because I had got 25 runs I had to retire. You only then get to go back in if everyone on your team is out.”
Hannah Wilson, 12, said: “I enjoy PE in general and I tried cricket and found I was good at it when I was at Broadway Primary School.”
If the team wins the county competition, they will get to play in the national final at Lords in London.
