Year 5 Kwik Cricket Tournament
Longfleet conducted themselves brilliantly at this tournament, held at Poole Grammar School, to finish in 3rd place overall. Wins against Oakdale and St Aldhelm’s in the group stages (including a tense final ball win against the latter) ensured our progress to the semi-finals. We came up against a determined St Joseph’s team, who, after a very close game, beat us by 2 runs (again off the final ball!). This then put us up against St Aldhelm’s (again) for the 3rd/4th place play off. Longfleet won this match by 30 runs. Highlights of the day included a hat trick by Alfie Wathen, which, on its own is amazing in itself, but was made ever more spectacular by Alfie Partridge taking all three catches. One of these, a diving, one-handed effort, Ben Stokes would have been proud of.
