Sir John Talbot’s staged a Boys’ Year 7 & 8 Cricket World Cup event on Thursday 26th February. The event was designed to promote student awareness of the international tournament presently taking place in Australia and, more importantly, to further strengthen links with Whitchurch Cricket Club, our main feeder club. The club was represented by England Cricket Board (ECB) Senior coach Rod Jones, Chairman of Whitchurch Cricket Club, and Evelyn Jones a Level 3 ECB coach and former SJT student.
Each of SJT’s four houses Red Brook, Oss Mere, Blake Mere & Brown Moss “represented” England, South Africa, West Indies & Australia respectively. The games were run on the Kwik Cricket format encouraging batting & fielding. The students conveyed a real sense of enjoyment demonstrating competitiveness and sportsmanship in equal measure.
Results: South Africa were the Year 7 winners & Australia were the Year 8 winners. Our main intention was to link as many pupils as possible to our local club in order to further support the cricket they receive in school via lessons, ECB Chance to Shine (our 10th year with the initiative), County Cup and district fixtures, ECB Chance to Compete initiative tournaments, as well as developing student leadership through the ECB Cricket Activators Course.
