Long Sutton Primary School girls cricket team’s progression to the Kwik Cricket National Finals at Harrogate has seen them grow in confidence.

Spalding Grammar School was the venue for the start of their sporting achievement when they played five teams from four other local schools and won all of their matches, putting them through to the county final at Hartsholme.

They faced six teams and having played exceptionally well, the result was a tie for the final which the girls won by having scored the most runs overall.

Against the best teams in the north of the country, they lost their first two matches by just three and nine runs, going on to win their final match.

Headteacher Bill Lord said: “We are so proud of the girls’ achievement in getting to the national finals and the style of their play which is attacking and skilful.”

The girls are (not in order): Connie Gittens, Emmy Gittens, Maddison Upton, Talia Taplin, Emily Bates, Lucy Crisp, Anisha Jina, Freya Davis, Taya Armiger and Hannah Baker with Fiona Milnes (coach).
