Here is the story from our Online Team Competition winners.  They attracted over 160 mums, dads, school mates and friends to support their team and won themselves an amazing session with 2 England players:  Check out below!!

On the 4th of August, the ASDA kwik cricket team from Dereham in Norfolk made the most of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet some very famous cricketers: Steve Finn, an English International known for his fast bowling, and Jonathan Trott, the Ashes-winning batsman, joined the team at King Edward’s VI Handsworth School indoor facilities in Birmingham on a rainy Wednesday to conduct an exclusive coaching session to the young players who came all the way from Norfolk.


Boys and girls from Scarning VC Primary School were able to enjoy and have fun with their cricketing heroes on one of the best days of their lives after taking part in the ASDA Kwik Cricket Competition which involved a massive 12,000 schools this year! The overjoyed school-children won this opportunity through this website. Every school that took part in the Kwik Cricket scheme was invited to set up their team online and the school that could attract the most supporters won this exclusive and fantastic prize. The mums, dads and the rest of the school all got behind Scarning VC's ASDA Kwik Cricket team to help them win this wonderful prize and managed to brush aside the challenge from the other 12,000 competing schools! 

 
All the children from Scarning VC Primary School were full of excitement and had a great experience learning new skills whilst also receiving exclusive tips from Steve Finn and Jonathan Trott. Both cricketers shared and taught their newest skills which we will hopefully see in their next set of matches before the children get to show their friends! Who knows, maybe we will see some Scarning VC pupils in a future Ashes series? Not only did the England players give the children fresh advice, they were also happy to pose for photographs with the children and sign their kwik cricket equipment as well as their t-shirts. Even the adults were jealous!
