A group of 19 Year 5 and 6  girls took part in the ‘South Tyneside Kwick Cricket Tournament’ at Whitburn Cricket Club on Wednesday 7th June.

The girls formed 2 teams. The B team did very well against strong opposition and ahda  mixture of results as result of good bowling and fielding.

The A team had great success winning all 4 of their games in their league, some more comfortably than others.

This secured the A team a place in the final against St Oswald’s Primary School. Another successful win meant that Mortimer A team came out overall winners from the 18 teams taking part and will now go on to compete at the ‘County Games’ representing South Tyneside.

An excellent day’s cricket was had by all!

We wish the nine girls from the A team every success in their forthcoming county competition later this month.
