Nine children travelled to Croydon High School for their first rounder’s match of the season. The team were Rose B, Eleanor D, Isabella G, Freya H, Jessica H, Isabelle J, Erin L, Isabella P and Megan S. Erin L very bravely stepped into the team at the last minute as Millie C was off sick and Megan took up the challenge of becoming the team bowler. I had attended a rounder’s course the week before and I was keen to implement the ideas that I had learnt, though unfortunately Year 6 had been away at Kingswood so we had a 30 minute practice before the game.
The team were magnificent; they took on board the new fielding ideas and quickly saw the results. The first innings saw us scoring 8 rounders to the other teams 4.5. In the second innings we hung onto our lead and won the match by 12 rounder’s to their 11. Everyone played brilliantly; they all fielded and batted superbly.
