Day 5 – Norfolk girls showed they can by not getting ‘caught out’ in the rain as they ‘hit for six’ on day 5 of the Summer County Finals.

The morning start off with the teams being drawn into two groups , teams played matches within their groups 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 then proceed to play knock out matches before finally playing their last round of matches , playing off for their final placings.

All of the girls were given a certificate at the end of the event to celebrate their achievement in qualifying for the finals.

We also gave out additional certificates for a select few that showed sportsmanship like qualities through out the day , these were nominated by school staff and volunteers.

A BIG thank you to the young sports leaders from Attleborough Academy , without the support of young leaders events like this events wouldn’t happen.
