On Thursday 8th June 2023 selected children that had been a part of Mrs King’s cricket club attended the WNDSSP Kwik cricket competition with 12 other schools.
Toftwood have been practicing very hard under the expert coaching of Mrs King and this was evident in their performances.
The first part of the competition was a round robin competition with Toftwood playing Beeston (93 vs 26 win). After this they played Astley and came through a closely fought match
(59 vs 40).
The team had qualified for the semi-finals where they faced Thomas Bullock. After some fantastic batting and some strong bowling the team overcame the opponent (73 vs 42) and had reached the final.
In the final Toftwood faced a Taverham side who had also clearly been practicing. Unfortunately, due to injury Taverham were unable to field a mixed team and after a hard fought game came through as victors (106 vs 65).
Although disappointed with the result all the children should be very proud of the effort and attitude they had during the event. Being the only team to congratulate or commiserate with all opponents.
Excitingly by finishing runner-up the team will be attending the county finals on the 22nd June at Horsford CC and we look forward to continuing to show the great work rate and positive attitude that got the team there in the first place and fingers crossed they will perform as they did at this event.
Well done team.
