Cricket at St Swithun’s is stepping up a pace. Yesterday evening 16 pupils from L4 through to M5 enjoyed an evening co-curricular coaching session from Tichborne Cricket Club coach Bruce Prevett and two lady captains from the club’s newly formed ladies’ XI. The session had been organised by sports teacher Sara Heffernan, who herself plays regularly for the local Alton Cricket Club ladies’ team.
Girls warmed up with catching and throwing activities before practising their batting skills and then launching into a mini game. All will be valuable skills practice prior to the matches against Kings’ School, Winchester and Portsmouth Grammar later this term.
