Keen bowler, Jude said, “It was fun to play against other good teams and with some people I know outside my school. To then go on to win the overall tournament was really good.”
Herbie, who bowled out a Wiltshire player in the Semi Finals, said, “There were great facilities playing in the sun brilliant for cricket. But it was a bit windy, knocking over the stumps multiple times! However, it didn’t ruin it for us, it just made it funny!”
A huge congratulations to all of the boys who participated, what an achievement!
