Young cricketers instrumental in club national success
Earlier this month the U13 Cambridge Granta cricket team finished 3rd in the Nat West National Club Cricket 20 over competition.
Five Perse cricketers took part: Ansh Tandon (captain) and Tom Baldwin from Year 8, Ben Cross and Theo Pixley from Year 7, and Will Baldwin from Year 6. Oliver Gadsby and George Bowden, both joining the school in September in Year 9, also took part.
1700 teams entered the competition and the team won through the County and Regional rounds to reach the last six. The finals were hosted over three days at Oundle School and the team narrowly missed out on second place by net run rate. Eoin Morgan, the England cricketer presented the awards to the team.
