Cricket Team through to County Finals

Ropsley School through to County Finals

Last Wednesday our Cricket Team played in the Grantham Schools tournament at Gorse Lane Cricket Club.

We were delighted to make it through to the semi-finals where we met Grantham Preparatory School. We needed 4 runs to draw which Sam Gilbert ably supplied. We had drawn which meant we needed to look at wickets lost. We had lost only two wickets and Grantham Prep had lost six.

We we could hardly believe we had reached the final - spirits were high as we played Uffington. Unbelievably we found ourselves once again needing 4 runs off the last ball to win. We all held our breath as Sam (Liam Plunkett) Gilbert once again delivered. 

Our thanks to Gratham Cricket Club for the refreshments supplied on the day.
