Table Cricket Finals at Lords
On Friday 9th June, a team of 5 Fairfax students took part in the Table Cricket National Finals at the home of cricket – Lords.
We were up against it from the beginning of the day as we had lost experienced players to illness or sitting GCSE Biology. We were like Argentina without Messi & Martinez! However, the two ‘Newbies’ did excellently, with Anna Williams scoring three 6s from one over!
In our first group game, we beat the eventual winners of the tournament by ONE run! By the end of our group games, we were level on points/wins with two other teams. We had scored more runs. But our ‘run difference’ was less than theirs. So, we ended up in a play-off for 5th/6th place.
The team had to gel quickly and did so. They were brilliant ambassadors for Fairfax throughout the day. With Humzah and Cao fulfilling various media commitments with the BBC and local radio. Well done Team Fairfax!!
Fairfax has got talent!
