CRIES of ‘howzat?’ could be heard around the Bicester and North Oxford Cricket Club during the annual Kwik Cricket Festival.
More than 150 young people from the Cooper family of primary schools took part in the event on Friday last week.
This event was organised by The Cooper School and Year Five and Six children from Longfields, Langford Village, Glory Farm, Charlton-on-Otmoor and Launton Primary Schools participated.
The festival is designed to provide an opportunity for young people to put their cricket skills to the test.
Twenty one Year Nine students from The Cooper School, who had taken part in a cricket leader training session to help prepare them for the event, took responsibility for umpiring the matches.
They also ran warm up activities.
There were eight girls’ teams and eight boys’ teams, with each event being played in two pools, followed by play-off matches.
Longfields and Glory Farm Schools won the boys’ and girls’ competitions respectively.
Charlton-on-Otmoor School was the runner up in both competitions.
These teams and the runners up have qualified for the North Oxon School Sport Partnership Finals which will take place in June.
