The first SJBC Cricket fixture held at Mary Datchelor Playing Fields against Kingdale School. The Year 8 team was led by Tanesh and there was some extremely promising individual performances from a team of which 90% of them have only been playing Cricket properly for the last 4/5 weeks. With Mr Lane (Bowling coach) and Mr Bradford (Batting coach) guiding them through the rules the boys took to the field first and the home team finished on 104/4. There were quite a few extra’s due to our lack of experience which didn’t help the score line but also some encouraging catches and fielders in general. With a lot of work to do our boys finished on 44 all out! This was the second time in their lives most of them had faced a proper ball, the first being 3 hours before in a PE lesson!
