Congratulations to the children who represented St. John’s at the cricket tournament on Friday 8th June at Sevenoaks School.
After our promotion last season, we faced some stiff opposition in the form of Amherst, who were the eventual runners up, and Sevenoaks Primary School.
We played well and made significant improvements throughout the matches. Despite not coming away with a win, the children played with determination, a positive attitude and commitment. It was great to hear their encouraging comments to each other and their enthusiasm for the game.
Thanks go again to Mr Edward Oatley who supported, coached and encouraged the children throughout. Thank you too to the parents, relatives and friends who came to support the team. It was wonderful to see such support for our pupils. We hope to play again in this tournament when the current pupils will be Year 6 and a year older with more experience, ready to play their best and do battle on the pitch!
I hope that this little taster will inspire all of the children who have had limited exposure to cricket, to pick up a bat and ball and play more of this wonderful game!
Well done to you all.
