Schools from across the country have travelled to York for St Olave’s School’s annual Super8’s cricket tournament.
Now in its third year, the Super 8’s cricket competition saw eight teams split into two groups.
The teams faced their competitors in fast-paced, high-scoring and hugely entertaining eight over games with coloured clothing, pink balls, blue stumps and flashing bails.
After defeating Bradford Grammar School, King’s Ely made it to the final, where they played Trent College who had overcome St Olave’s in the semi-finals.
In a highly-competitive final, Trent College beat King’s Ely by 44 runs. Trent College blasted their way to 109 in their 8 overs, and while Kings’ Ely fought hard against a talented Trent side, they only managed 65 in reply.
Gareth Sharp, St Olave’s PE and Games teacher and St Peter’s 1st XI Head Coach, said: “There was some outstanding schoolboy cricket played today – bowling, batting and fielding of the highest calibre; I am sure that we have seen some stars of the future on show today. Thank you to our sponsors BLK and B3 Cricket for the kits and prizes respectively. Congratulations to Trent College who played some first class cricket and to King's Ely, who were more than worthy opponents in the final.”
