Runs flow at Priory cricket day!

on .

prioryPupils from Spalding Special School’s - Priory and Garth Schools, took part in England’s national summer sport as cricket came in to bat.

The second annual Spalding Special Schools Federation Cricket Day took place at the Priory School in Neville Avenue, Spalding, where four teams played off for the chance to contest the regional finals at Burghley House, near Stamford.

The young batsmen showed their speed between wickets and the partnership of the day went to Priory School pair Sarah Hall and Liam Bushnell who led their Year 9 team to success.


Chris Allen, PE tutor at the Priory School, said: “The idea was to find the best team from the area, with three teams from Priory and one from Garth. The children really enjoyed it and there was a really good atmosphere because they love any form of competition.”

“The Year 9 team at the Priory won through to the next round at Burghley House where they will play a team from Nottinghamshire. The winner from that game then goes through to the final which will be played at The Oval or Lord’s in London.” 

Organiser Alan Porter, Chairman of the Cricket Society Trust, said: “It went very well and we saw some good fielding, along with four sixes this year. Four teams played at the Priory School which was ideal for us and the day was kindly sponsored by South Holland District Council member Cllr Harry Dury, who presented the prizes.”
