Churchtown Primary School Win Kwik Cricket Festival
CHURCHTOWN PRIMARY SCHOOL WIN KWIK CRICKET FESTIVAL
Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School was delighted to welcome over 100 Year 5 pupils from 11 local primary schools to take part in a Kwik Cricket Festival in Crosby.
Kwik cricket is a high-speed version of cricket aimed at encouraging children to take part in the main sport. Many of the rules are adapted from cricket and can be altered so that virtually any number of children can play in the time available. For this festival each school brought 10 players – with 8 per team on the pitch at one time.
Each team played 4 games and had a great day of cricket. Sarah Clarke, from Belvedere Preparatory School, commented that “the children thoroughly enjoyed it. We look forward to doing it again soon.”
The Festival winners were Churchtown Primary School from Southport and their PE teacher, Mr Matthew King, said that “today was good experience for all involved. From a teaching perspective, it is also really beneficial for our sports teams to be able to compete with different schools outside of the Southport area.” Coincidentally, Mr King is an Old Boy of Merchant Taylors’ and was returning to familiar surroundings.
Waterloo Primary School beat Ursuline RC Primary School in the Bowl competition with Great Crosby defeating Trinity St Peter’s Primary, Formby, in the final of the Plate.
David Cook, Headmaster at Merchant Taylors’ was delighted to welcome so many enthusiastic cricketers to school. “Currently we have 8 boys from various year groups who have been selected for Lancashire Cricket teams and one pupil, George Lavelle, was named as the recipient of the Sir Jack Hobbs Award for the Best Young Cricketer in England last year. It is excellent to see so many boys and girls taking part in today’s festival – the future of the sport looks to be in safe hands”.
