U15 CRICKET v SALE GRAMMAR SCHOOL

The U15 cricket team had a narrow escape against Sale Grammar School in the Trafford round of the National Schools’ competition.

We bowled first and Sale were all out for 58 runs.

It was then our turn to bat. We were 37 for 7 when Ellie R. came into bat needing to score 21 runs. She eventually scored 24 runs, winning us the game. Well done Ellie.

The team now go through to the county final after Easter.

YEAR 9 HOCKEY v LYMM HIGH SCHOOL

Well done to the U14 ‘A’/’B’ team for their 3-1 against Lymm’s ‘A’ team. In the squad of 14 players there were 6 ‘A’ team players but in the match only 3 of them played at any one time. The girls who do not normally play on a Saturday morning played some excellent hockey. Well done girls. We have so much strength in depth in year 9 at ‘Alti Girls’.

HOCKEY RESULTS v KIRKHAM GRAMMAR SCHOOL

We set off to Preston Arena not knowing if we had enough players to play as so many had rung in saying they had been ill all night or were still recovering from illness!!!

1stX1 lost 3-1

U16X1 with only 3 of their age group available played with a mixture of year 12’s, 11’s, 10’s and 9’s. Even so they won 1-0. Mrs O’Neal had been watching and said they played really well together. So much for practicing as a team!!!!!

U15X1 won 2-0

U14X1 won 1-0

The year 7 and 8 mini teams were the teams mainly designated by ill players

U13’A’ lost 4-2.                 U13’B’ lost 1-0

U12’A’ lost 4-0.                 U12’B’ lost 3-2

It is the first time in a while that the junior teams have lost so it will give them something to think about in the matches after half term.

There are NO matches next Saturday as it is half term.

There are also NO matches the first week back as free half term as most of the schools we play are on their half term.

The next fixtures are on Saturday 4th March for U18 (their county tournament at Home) and the year 7 tournament at Arnold/Queen Mary School , Lytham. Sorry no matches for U16, U15, U14 or U13.

It’s the time of the season when there are tournaments so we are not able to offer full fixtures. See fixture card for further details.
