5C Champions!

Newport pupils enjoyed a great day out at Aldershot cricket club's 23rd annual cricket festival. However 5C stole the show and exceeded expectations by winning every match they played!

Led by their captain Reece and some big hitting from Harry, Elise and Mitchell they won through to play their final against Talavera. The players all batted enthusiastically in the final with Elise and Reece catching the eye with some good scores but the best was saved until last when Billie plundered a mind boggling 39 runs off the Talavera bowlers. The Talavera bowlers tried everything but to no avail and the fielders were shell shocked and in disarray with the ball hit everywhere during her phenomenal batting performance.

Talavera could not match the Newport performance and were skittled out for a mere 15 runs

with Harry B taking a great catch and Reece bowling with great accuracy and thought.

Mr Mulvanney commented " Everyone was amazing and we really showed great determination and team work. It was a brilliant day."
