The Games are a legacy of the 2012 Olympics and a chance for youngsters to get involved in sport and competition.

Moulton’s John Harrox A team emerged as winners, with Weston Hills runners-up and Pinchbeck East third.

In fourth place were Spalding Monkshouse, fifth were St John the Baptist, Spalding, and Harrox B were sixth.

Organiser Rupert Gibson was delighted with the performances and said: “It was great to see so much excellent teamwork, determination and respect from all the teams.

“The standard of cricket has improved so much over the last few years, so well done to all the players, schools and clubs.”

Mark Laud from Spalding Cricket Club was in attendance to support and to let the children know how they can get further involved in club cricket. The club also very kindly provided medals for the winning team.

Thanks go to Spalding Grammar School for hosting the event and for providing sevenexcellent sports leaders to umpire the games.

John Harrox will now represent the Spalding area against other areas of south east Lincolnshire on June 7, with the winners there competing in the county finals on June 30.
