Day 3 of the summer finals ‘bowls’ us over with lots of young cricketing talent on show.

Tuesday 20th June 2017 saw the third day of the Norfolk Summer School Games get underway with our Mixed Kwik Cricket Finals. Whilst it wasn’t as hot as Day 2, we had perfect weather for a day packed full of Kwik Cricket matches at Horsford Cricket Club.

There were a total of 16 teams from across the 8 School Sport Partnerships taking part in today’s Mixed Kwik Cricket County Finals. With around 160 pupils in attendance in total.

The 16 teams that qualified for todays event, were split into 4 pools of 4 teams and played matches within their pools in a round robin format.

After the first rounds of matches had all been played, the 1st and 2nd placed teams in each pool then advanced to the Cup competition whilst the 3rd and 4th placed teams went onto play in the Plate competition.

The teams the proceed to play quarter-final matches and then semi-final matches before finally playing their last round of matches , playing off for their finals placings.

Congratulations to our winners Brooke Primary, who beat St. Williams Primary  in super over, after a sensational tied final match.

1st – Brooke

2nd – St. Williams

3rd – Cringleford

Plate Winners ( overall 9th place ) – Downham Prep

Along with the main competition we also had nominations handed in from school staff through out the day for pupils that showed sportsmanship  like qualities, congratulations to those that were presented at Sportsmanship Award during the presentation.

The Norfolk School Games team would like to say a massive thank you to the Young Sports Leaders from Reepham High School, for their umpiring and scoring talents at todays event. Without the support from our local high schools and their leaders events like this could not run as well as they do , if at all.

We would also like to thank the staff and volunteers from the Norfolk Cricket Board for their continued support in making this event run so smoothly .
