Broom Leys Primary Hit for Six at Kwik Cricket Finals!

10 Teams from across Leicestershire, Leicester City & Rutland, took part in the Kwik Cricket Super-Series Final last week (18th June).

In a closely fought contest which saw all 10 partnerships represented, it was Broom Leys Primary School (North West Leicester) that took home the gold medals. Frisby C of E Primary School (Melton & Belvoir) came second, with Mercenfeld Primary School (Hinckley & Bosworth) finishing in third position.

The 'Spirit of the Games' trophy was awarded to Whissendine C of E Primary School (Rutland). The umpires collectively believed that this school best showed the values in which the "School Games" represents - Determination, Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-Belief and Teamwork.

The Super-Series Final saw up to 10 Year 5/6 girls and boys representing each partnership, which was kindly hosted by Ashby Hastings Cricket Club.
