Wednesday 24th June saw eleven primary schools from Atherton and Tyldesley take part in the KS2 Kwik Cricket Festival at Astley and Tyldesley Cricket Club.
St. George's Central, Sacred Heart, St. Stephen's, Garrett Hall, St. John's, St. Ambrose Barlow, Holy Family, Hindsford, St. Michael's, Tyldesley Primary and St. Philip's all brought teams of children to take part in the event which was organised by ATSA.
Each school played a number of games with the team across all three groups having the highest average score being the overall festival winner. Once all the matches were completed and the scores worked out, it was the team from St.Michael's, who scored an average score of 267, and were crowned the KS2 Kwik Cricket Festival champions.
Travis Wordsworth, Australian professional player for Astley and Tyldesley, was on hand to present certificates, medals and trophies.
I would like to thank Astley and Tyldesley Cricket Club for allowing us to use their facilities, especially James Cutt, Travis Wordsworth and Adam Lynch. Thanks also to the members of Astley and Tyldesley Cricket Club who expertly umpired the matches. A mention also to the many supporters who came to the event.
