Schools kwik-ly get to grips with cricket at festival

SCHOOLS from around the borough took part in two ‘inter cricket’ festivals.

The North Tyneside Year 7/8 Festivals took place at Backworth CC and Tynemouth CC.

George Stephenson High School won the boys tournament while Valley Gardens Middle School took the honours in the girls’.

Both winning teams have now qualified for the county finals at Stocksfield on Wednesday, June 29.

Inter cricket is a slightly modified version of kwik cricket that includes soft balls and wooden bats.
