After a successful competition at Whitburn Cricket Club, Mortimer Y5/6 Girls Cricket Team went on to represent the county at Darlington.

After facing tough opposition in their league, the year 5/6 girls emerged as overall winners which earned them a place in the semi-finals.

Again, despite nerves and excitement, the girls were victorious and found themselves in the final against Neville Cross from Durham.

Unfortunately, this time they were on the losing side but not until a magnanimous effort on behalf of the girls.

To be runners up in a county tournament in which over 100 teams initially took park, is an accolade in itself.

All of the girls have been a sheer delight to coach and fantastic to representatives of Mortimer Primary School. Mrs Keighery and I are incredibly proud of you.
