Crackley Take The Bronze Medal At ISA Midlands Cricket Tournament
Crackley Hall was delighted to take the Bronze Medal at the ISA Midlands Cricket Tournament.
On Wednesday 15 June, Crackley Hall hosted its annual ISA Midlands U11 Hardball Cricket Festival welcoming teams from The Priory School, Twycross House School, Birchfield School, Old Vicarage School, Tettenhall College and Ruckleigh School to play two teams from Crackley Hall on the sports fields.
In addition to the main competition, all the teams participated in a range of fielding, catching, batting and bowling clinics. The quality of play on display was excellent, with clear evidence of each school improving not only their cricketing skills, but also their tactical awareness in the 6-a-side format contested over 5 overs each way. It made for plenty of fast-paced action on the field of play.
After the first round, The Priory School and Ruckleigh School topped their groups and both went forward to contest the final, with Ruckleigh School eventually lifting the winner’s trophy. Having finished second in their group Crackley Comets faced Tettenhall College to decide third place. After a tight match, Crackley Hall was delighted to take the win and claim the Bronze Medal.
In the presentations there were also awards for the best fielder, batter and bowler, as well as the longest throw and the player of the tournament.
Special thanks to all the Crackley Hall and Princethorpe staff for their support of the event, and to Sixth Formers Will and George who did an excellent job umpiring all day.
