Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket launched their Asda Kwik Cricket festivals for 2013 with a launch tournament at St Peters C of E Primary Academy in Market Bosworth. This also gave the 3 classes taking part a chance to test some knew cricketing skills which had learnt over the previous 5 weeks.

The 3 Year 5/6 classes were split into 6 teams, who all came up with their own imaginative team names, including ‘Thunderbolts’, ‘The Amazing Sausages’, and more simply ‘Asda’.

All the teams then competed for a chance to play in the grand final, which took place on the central playground.

The two teams who competed for the title of Asda Launch Champions, and of course a chance to be the best 12 players in Year 5/6 were Team ‘Asda’ and Team ‘Happy as Larry’.  It was a closely contested final which was loudly supported by the 4 other teams, which I am sure made the rest of the school very jealous! In the end, it was it cannot be too much of a surprise that Team ‘Asda’ were crowned the winners!

There will be two Asda Kwik Cricket events taking place in Leicestershire & Rutland this summer. Kibworth CC will be hosting the Year 6 Mixed tournament on Wednesday 19th June. On Thursday 20th June, Uppingham Town CC will welcome the teams contesting in the Year 6 Girls tournament.
