2014 Cricket Factory Cup – Finals’ Day

The Cricket Scotland Schools’ Week of Cricket culminated with a Finals’ Day in the Cricket Factory Cup.

The five schools that came together and competed for the cup at a gloriously sunny Doo’Cot Park, in Perth, were Breadalbane Academy, James Gillespie’s High School, Kyle Academy, Lomond School and Monifieth High School.  The competition worked on a round robin basis, with each school also getting the opportunity to further enhance their skills by using a Cricket Factory Core Skills set.

However, by winning their fourth and final match, LomondSchool finished with a perfect record (P4, W4) – and were crowned as champions for 2014.
