Lots of cricketing activity again last week with the Year 7 boys playing Reading Blue Coat School, St Bart`s holding the first Year 7 girls’ cricket festival and Year 8 and 9 in action too!

Year 7 Boys’ Cricket

The Year 7 Boys’ Cricket Team played a close match against Reading Blue Coat School (RBC) in the County Cup. St Bart’s won the toss and put RBCS into bat first, and they scored 131 for 3 off 20 overs. St Bart’s scored 99 all out off 17 overs. A very respectable score. Players of the match were Yudeesh Balachandran and Ed Hancock for their brilliant batting partnership.

 Year 7 Girls’ Cricket

St Bart`s held the first Year 7 girls’ cricket festival.

Thank you to our groundsman James Bloodworth who created four amazing cricket pitches for us on Luker field.
