On June 10, Bourne Abbey Primary Academy entered a Year 6 girls’ cricket team into a district competition in Spalding.
They had already experienced competitive cricket, having played alongside the boys in a Bourne competition, but this was the first time in this event.
The girls played five tough matches against teams from Bourne Westfield A and B, Long Sutton, St John’s and Linchfield. They demonstrated fantastic individual cricket skills and worked brilliantly as a team to win four of the five games, only narrowly losing the other by 15 runs, to finish runners up.
The team were Evie Price, Bethany Elliott, Anita Wong, Millie Russell, Elza Williamson, Libby Friel, Eleanor Smith and Holly Lewis.
