THIS week the Lowestoft and Beccles Schools' Sports Partnership hosted three area Primary Schools' Kwik Cricket tournaments. Kwik Cricket is a mixed eight-a-side game (four boys and four girls) in which every participating pupil is required to bat, bowl and field.

The three area tournaments were:

North Suffolk Primary Schools - held at the Denes Oval on Wednesday, May 19.

South Lowestoft Primary Schools - held at the Denes Oval on Thursday, May 20.

Beccles Primary Schools - held at Beccles Cricket Club on Thursday, May 20.

All three tournaments were fortunate to be played in glorious sunny conditions and the quality of the cricket and sporting behaviour on display were highly commendable.

Seven schools participated in the North Lowestoft competition; they were Blundeston Primary, Northfield Primary, Roman Hill Primary, Woods Loke Primary, Corton Primary, Gunton Primary and St Margaret's Primary.

It was Roman Hill who added to their impressive list of sporting successes this season to beat Gunton Primary in the final. In third place was Woods Loke Primary.

The South Lowestoft primary competition saw eight competing teams - Dell Primary, Oulton Broad Primary, Pakefield Primary, Elm Tree Primary, Whitton Green Primary, St Mary's Primary, Meadow Primary, and Grove Primary. Here Grove Primary emerged as overall winners beating Oulton Broad Primary by just eight runs in the final. In third place was Whitton Green Primary.

Finally 9 schools participated in the Beccles competition - Albert Pye Primary, Barnby & North Cove Primary, Worlingham Primary, Ringsfield Primary, Brampton Primary, Kessingland Primary, Carlton Colville Primary, St Michaels Primary, and St Benet's Primary. It was Brampton who beat Carlton Colville in an exciting final, with Worlingham finishing third.

It is intended to bring the three area winners together shortly to compete for the overall Partnership Champions trophy.

Many thanks go to Lowestoft Cricket Club and Beccles Cricket Club for hosting the tournaments, to Lowestoft Cricket Club players Mpho Sekhoto, Tom Brice and Stuart Faulkner and Benjamin Britten High School Sports Ambassadors Louis Ayers and Jess Kleyn for assisting with umpiring.
