Last Friday, Year 5 entered the West Oxfordshire Kwik Cricket tournament, held at Stonesfield C.C.
On a warm day, Eynsham made light work of the teams in their league, easing into the semi finals with four wins.
They knew, however, that the other league had some stronger teams. The semi final found them drawn against the Batt School. A great batting performance (as well as a stirring speech from the coach: “If you win this, you get another day out of school!”) saw them reach the final, playing Witney C.P. School.
This time it was thanks to a great bowling display from the whole team, as well as some fantastic catches during the final over of the innings, to seal Eynsham’s victory in the tournament, as well as their passage into the Oxfordshire finals on the 12th July. Well done, boys!
