At the end of the summer term, this year’s Schools Week of Cricket took place in Perth
Monday 10 June – Girls Only Tournaments
A record 34 girls teams battled on a gloriously sunny Monday morning for the Girls Primary Schools Trophy, the S1-2 Girls Trophy and the S4-6 Girls Trophy at the North Inch Park.
Despite a very wet end to the day, all teams played enough matches to identify the winners in each age group. The skills on display were extremely impressive and a lot of fun and learning was had as well!
