Elliot’s Cricketing Success

Well done to Elliot, one of our sports scholars, on his fantastic performance playing for Boston Cricket Club Senior Side. Playing in only his third match for the side, Elliot bowled nine overs against Burley Park in the South Lincs & Borders 2nd Division, and took his first senior wicket removing the No. 3 batsman LBW. He then went into bat at No.4 and top scored with 25 runs, facing 81 balls, 26 overs, and was not out. To put this achievement into perspective, Burley Park scored 251 runs for their 45 overs, in reply Boston were all out for 79 in 41 overs.

It is wonderful to see pupils playing for local clubs and enjoying the game outside of school. We have a number of pupils playing cricket for their local clubs including Bracebridge Heath, Lindum, and Woodhall Spa.

If there are others keen to play more cricket, please see Mrs Felton or Mr Short to find your local club.
