Old Buckenham cricketers to play at Lords

Girls in great form

Old Buckenham High School U15 Girls cricket team, coached by Head of PE Andy Dwight and Mike Banham of the Old Buckenham Cricket Club, have had an amazing start to 2017. They won the County Indoor Cricket Finals at the University of East Anglia last month and followed this up by winning the Regional Finals in Leicester this week. Their exceptional performance at Leicester saw them winning all four games on the day and has secured them a place in the National Finals being held at Lords Cricket Ground in London sometime next month. PE Teacher Jo Cook commented "It was amazing - we were shaking at the thought that these fantastic girls in our modest little school could actually become the best in the country".
It is hoped that a BBC film crew will be at the school tomorrow and that an item on the team and their success will be on BBC Look East later in the day.
