Kwik cricket: Newport go close

The paired cricket league began this week with 8 players from year 6 selected to represent the school .

Year 6 played their first competitive league game and lost narrowly by 6 runs in their first game against Beaumont . This was an excellent performance as Newport batted first and kept their composure (which is a distinct disadvantage in this format of cricket) and scored well whilst losing 7 wickets in their 12 overs .Everyone played really well. Matthew nearly had a hat trick when bowling whilst Saad was a revelation in both his batting, bowling and fielding.

Beaumont are experienced cricketers and have a strong reputation at cricket and managed to edge ahead only in the final over . A very promising start to our cricket season.

Newport 244 Beaumont 250
Team: Matthew, Reece, Richard, Josh, Saad, Rhiann, Hannah, Shannon
