Under 12 Cricket Tour to Shropshire
A squad of twelve Year 7's headed North over the Exeat weekend for a whistle stop cricket tour in Shrewsbury.
The team played a T20 game on Friday followed by a two innings 30 over game on the Saturday both against Prestfelde School.
Friday's game was won by Cheam in the last over, after a good partnership between Johnny GC and Harry B and Hugo M hitting the winning runs with 4 balls to spare. In Saturday's fixture, Cheam were trailing by 8 runs after the first innings and were eventually set 99 to win off 15 overs and after some power hitting from James M, Harry B and latterly Hugo M, Cheam scrambled a bye through to the keeper off the last ball!
Two incredibly close games and both played in an excellent spirit.
The boys also enjoyed some excellent hospitality from Prestfelde, which included watching the Lions v NZ early on Saturday morning and a couple of very good feeds!
A short but hugely enjoyable trip to ease the boys into their Summer Holidays!
