SEND Schools Kwik Cricket Competitions

June proved to be a busy month for school competitions, with four major events taking place. Alder Cricket Club and Middleton Cricket club shared the hosting of the competitions, which saw over 320 pupils from almost 30 schools take part.

On 7 June, 15 teams from eight Merseyside schools competed across four separate competitions at Alder CC. The competitions ran in partnership with Greenbank Sports Academy. There were some extremely close matches throughout the day, with the eventual winners being:

  • Physical Disability: Sandfield Park
  • Severe Learning Disability 1: Lansbury Bridge
  • Severe Learning Disability 2: Chestnut Lodge
  • Moderate Learning Disability: Crosby High

On the 12 and 14 June, 14 teams from 13 schools competed in two separate competitions at Middleton Cricket Club.

Whilst matches are competitive, the friendly and supportive nature of pupils and staff led to a comfortable atmosphere across both days. Many pupils in these competitions have experienced coaching in school via the Lancashire Cricket Foundation and Lord’s Taverners Super 1s programme. The competition winners were: 

  • Moderate Learning Disability: Redwood High School
  • Severe Learning Disability: Melland High School

James Dixon, Deaf Cricket captain and Greenbank Sports Academy, was the lead for the first North West Deaf Cricket tournament. The funding for the competition was sourced via the Panathlon Association. Pupils from a number of schools formed teams from their area, in both primary and secondary aged competitions.

  • Primary: Knotty Ash
  • Secondary: Pendle Vale

The Lancashire Cricket Foundation would like to thank Alder CC and Middleton CC for their hospitality, Greenbank Sports Academy and the Panathlon Association for their continued support, and all the staff, volunteers and pupils who made the competitions so successful.
