North Walsham Junior School cricket team is going forward to the Norfolk Area competition after winning the North Norfolk School Sports Partnership Kwik Cricket competition.

They played against Stalham, Cromer, Worstead and two Mundesley school teams, winning all their five matches - in the case of Mundesley A by one run - in an exciting afternoon's cricket.

The team, consisting of Year 4, 5 and 6 boys, played some excellent cricket using a range of skills and tactics, with some very good running for quick singles.

Graham Hinton and Jacob Black hit fours and sixes in each match and took a number of wickets. Great catches were taken by Ian Clarke and Charlie Everson in a superb team fielding performance.
