Holbeach, Long Sutton, Moulton and Spalding youngsters enjoy Kwik Cricket

Eight teams from seven schools in the Holbeach, Long Sutton, Moulton and Spalding areas came together to compete in a School Games Kwik Cricket competition.

Organised by Agilitas Sports, the School Games are a legacy of the 2012 London Olympics and give pupils a chance to get involved in sport and competition.

Much like the Olympics, the Games also promote important values; Honesty, Respect, Passion, Determination, Teamwork and Self Belief.

Eight Year 5/6 teams from seven schools competed at Spalding Grammar School and were grouped into two pools who played each other through the morning.

In pool one, Spalding Parish came fourth, Moulton John Harrox third, Spalding St Norberts second and Spalding Ayschoughfee first. In pool two, Long Sutton were fourth, Holbeach Fleet Wood Lane third, Spalding St John's 2nd and Moulton John Harrox A first.

In the afternoon, Spalding Parish beat Long Sutton, Moulton John Harrox beat Fleet Wood Lane, St Norberts beats St John's and John Harrox A beat Ayscoughfee Hall in a thrilling final.

The award for the team showing the most passion went to St Norberts.

Moulton will now play the winner of the Bourne/Deepings section Bourne Westfield to determine who will go to the County Final on June 27.

School Games organiser, Rupert Gibson was delighted with the day 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."
