Year 6 Cricket Tournament

On Wednesday 13th June ten children from Year's 5 and 6 represented the school at a cricket tournament held at Moseley Ashfield ground.

In total, four schools entered the tournament: Chilcote, Hall Green, Bells Farm and The Oaks. They each played each other once in a round-robin format and the school with the most points at the end would be the winner.

Chilcote started against The Oaks and were put into bat first. They batted well and scored 256 runs. Chilcote then fielded and bowled. They were brilliant and managed to keep The Oaks to a score of 201. So a 55 run win in the first game with ten wickets taken.

In their second game Chilcote played against Bells farm, who opted to bat first. They posted a good score of 224 for 3. Again Chilcote bowled and fielded excellently. In reply they managed to score a fantastic 270 runs.

In their final game Chilcote played against Hall Green who had also won all of their matches. It was a thrilling and tense encounter with both teams playing some superb cricket. Hall Green set a score of 272 to draw and 273 to win. Chilcote batted well and went into the final two overs needing 12 runs off 12 balls. This then turned into 8 runs off the final 6 balls. Unfortunately in chasing the win they lost a wicket at the end and ended up on 263. A fantastic effort by all of the children!

Well done to all of the children for a very respectable second place finish!!!
