Wandsworth goes Cricket crazy!

Wandsworth kicked off the cricket season with a week of Kwik cricket tournaments for Primary schools across the borough.

Battersea Park hosted our first competition and saw Belleville, Sacred Heart (Battersea), John Burns, Wix and St George's battle it out with bat and ball.  It was great to see new players to the game developing their skills and enjoying the spirit of cricket.  Belleville finished top, and Sacred Heart in second.  Both teams will progress to the Wandsworth Finals on 16th June at Spencer CC.

Fishponds was the second host, to Hillbrook, Fircroft, Holy Ghost, Penwortham and Sellincourt.  There were some very close games, only a few runs between some results.  Hillbrook topped the group, with Sellincourt a very close second.  Both will join Belleville and Sacred Heart at Finals day.

Thursday took us to Dover House Road to host Sacred Heart (Putney), Our Lady of Victories, St Mary's, Brandlehow and All Saints.  On a very warm afternoon some tough battles were fought, particularly between the two teams from St Mary's!  All Saints and St Mary's will join the four teams above as well as Honeywell and Southmead in the finals.

The following week saw Inter cricket for Y7/8 boys at Southfields Community College.  Southfields and Graveney had a delayed start due to heavy rain but that did not deter them.  Graveney batted first and put up a total of 98, coming from consistent boundaries and great running between the wickets.  Southfields took three quick wickets towards the end to slow their run rate.  Graveney came into the field fighting and took a wicket with the first ball.  Control with the ball meant Southfields were always searching for the boundaries, which in the end was their downfall.  Two awesome catches in the field and one by the wicket keeper meant Southfields were restricted to a total of 41.  Graveney will go on to represent the Wandsworth Wizards at the Central London School Games on 1 July.

After rain postponed the Kwik cricket finals in June, they were played on 12 July at Spencer CC.  Hillbrook, Honeywell and Sacred Heart were in the Red group, and All Saints, Belleville and Sellincourt in the Yellow group.

Each team proved their place at finals with some huge hitting and exceptional catches.  Honeywell topped the red group and played Sellincourt who finished 2nd in the yellow group.  The other semi final was a battle between All Saints and Hillbrook.  With only 7 runs between both sets of semi finalists, it was clear everyone was fighting to reach the final.

Honeywell and Hillbrook came out on top and entered the final with nothing to lose!  The catch of the day was taken by Paul from Hillbrook, diving backwards, a one handed catch high above his head!  As all finals should, this one went down to the last ball!  Hillbrook had posted a total of 214 and Honeywell were on 216 with an over to go!  Two runs scored from the first 3 balls, and then came a run out chance as the Honeywell batter walked out of his crease before 'Over' had been called.  Hillbrook saw the chance and shyed at the stumps, missing by millimetres!  So our new Wandsworth Kwik Cricket Champions 2011 are Honeywell.  Congratulations.  Thank you to all the teams for making the afternoon such a great contest.
