2013 ASDA National Primary Schools’ Cup
The 2013 ASDA National Primary Schools’ Cup culminated with a National Finals’ Day at the picturesque Doo’Cot Park in Perth, on Tuesday 18th June.
In order to reach Finals’ Day, Primary Schools had won through a series of Regional Qualifying Tournaments. This format has ensured that Cricket Scotland has been able to continue to generate further interest, and additional participation, in the game – as well as providing a competitive outlet for primary school cricket teams. Over 500 schools entered, resulting in over 5000 school pupils being able to participate in the competition.
Finals’ Day saw 16 schools, from all across the country, meet in Perth for a day of exciting, and well-contested, cricket. After 40 games, Loretto Junior School emerged as the 2013 National Champions – defeating Drumlanrig & Denholm in the final.
The final placings on the day were as follows:
1) Loretto Junior School
