“Fun events like this really encourage our pupils to develop a lasting love of the game and test out their skills against some strong teams.”

With 20 pool matches on show, a supportive crowd of parents saw Cundall Manor and St Olave’s make it to the final with Cundall Manor claiming top spot after a tough final.

The team from Cundall showed superb fielding and concise batting to finally defeat St Olave’s by 10 – 6 1/2.
