An introduction to competitive cricket was relished by primary school pupils at Sawston & Babraham Cricket Club’s Spicers sports ground last week.

South Cambs School Sports Partnership hosted Dynamos cricket for Year 3 and 4 students with 10 teams representing nine schools which included Thriplow, Linton Heights, Meadow, Great Abington, Histon Park, Bourn, Hardwick, Cambourne Site and Trumpington Park.

It meant that more than 250 youngsters were taking part in the brand of cricket which connects to the elite level through The Hundred.

Dynamos is for eight to 11-year-olds, with everyone on the team getting to bat and bowl, with a no ball or wide giving the batter a ‘free hit’ from a batting tee to give everyone the opportunity to score runs.

Leaders from Bassingbourn and Cambourne Village Colleges umpired and scored the matches, with Cambridgeshire Cricket providing support.

Claire McDonnell, the South Cambs SSP manager, said: “It went really well, with lots of matches.

“It was great for schools to get to play against other schools in some friendly competition.

“They loved playing at a proper cricket ground, they had lots of chances to hit the ball and loved being part of their school team.

“The winning schools at Sawston were Bourn and Great Abington, with Thriplow and Cambourne picking up the Spirit of the Games awards for their excellent teamwork and respect of the opposition.”
