Cricketers from two Pembrokeshire primary schools travelled to Cardiff for the recent South Wales primary schools kwik cricket finals.
Narberth CP School and Ysgol Glan Cleddau, Haverfordwest, represented Pembrokeshire in an enjoyable day playing on the ground that hosted the first Ashes test of 2009.
Both schools qualified after ‘family of schools' festivals were played at cricket clubs at St Ishmaels, Llanrhian, Crymych, Haverfordwest, and Cresselly. A festival was also played at Fishguard Leisure Centre. Over 400 pupils participated in the festivals from years five and six.
At the finals in Cardiff, Narberth School played five group matches winning four out of five and progressed through to the semi finals where they narrowly lost to Rhiwbina by six runs.
Ysgol Glan Cleddau won one out of the three group matches but performed very well and lost very narrowly in both fixtures.
Cricket Development Officer Matt Freeman said it was great to see both schools perform well on the day and enjoy the event. He added "It was also extremely encouraging that the cricketing skills of two Narberth pupils were noticed by the under-11 national coach."
