Table Cricket

On 22nd April 2015 a team of 6 pupils travelled to Newmarket for the regional heat of the National Table Cricket Competition.  The team was a mix of youth and experience with two key stage 2 pupils for whom it was a new experience and with four pupils from key stage 4 and FE who helped the younger pupils with rules and how to play the game.  The team worked together and performed well in their games making some respectable scores.  Captain for the day Max lead his team admirably with encouragement and guidance for the younger members.  The team finished in 7th position overall with everyone thoroughly enjoying the day and an experience John Grant School can build on for the future.
