Ixworth marched on to the West Suffolk School Sports’ Partnership’s kwik cricket regional final after last week’s hard fought victory over Woolpit last. Four schools altogether competed at the spectacular Woolpit Cricket Ground on Wednesday 21st June. It was extremely hot and tiring!
Unfortunately Ixworth was beaten by an extremely good cricket team from Creeting St Mary Primary School. Although we lost the first match by only 21 runs, there was some great bowling and fielding from our team. Ixworth still had a match to play and fought for 3rd place. Sadly we lost again, but by just 15 runs (243-228) to Cedar Park Primary.
So we finished 4th out of 14 teams who competed in this year’s Kwik Cricket league, so we feel rather proud of ourselves! After all, many of our team have not played cricket before this year – but we will do so from now on!
