Year 8 cricket team finish as county runners-up

4 July 2019

On Tuesday evening, our year 8 cricket team competed in the Nottinghamshire Schools County Cup final against Nottingham High School’s U13A team at Thrumpton Cricket Club.

The surroundings were beautiful and both teams showed why they’d come so far in the competition with some excellent batting, bowling and fielding. However, ultimately it was one step too far for the National team as their opponents from Nottingham ran out (pun completely intended!) as winners on the night becoming county champions.

The National team can be very proud of their brilliant season and brave performance in the final. We’re very proud and you represented the academy superbly as ever – well done. 🥈🏏
