The ASDA National Kwik Cricket Finals for girls and mixed teams took place on 19th and 20th July at Derby County Cricket Ground. Teams travelled from far and wide to compete with the other 15 best kwik cricket teams in the country in the hope of becoming national champions. The weather was extremely kind with not one rain drop falling from the sometimes cloudy sky. This helped the competition run smoothly, ahead of schedule at times, which is a great credit to the fantastic effort from the organisers.

Churchfields, who were London’s only representatives at the year 6 mixed finals, already have a number of titles to their name including Essex county champions, Eastern Regional Champions and are looking to add a third – National Champions. They made a confident start to the day by winning their first game in convincing fashion by 60 runs. Churchfields went on to win their remaining two group games and finish top of the group, thus qualifying for the semi-finals.

Their opposition in the semis was Stivichall Primary School from Coventry. In a relatively low scoring game, Churchfields (236 runs) beat Stivichall (218 runs) and proceeded to the final. In the final they met Blackpool Primary School from Devon. Batting first, Churchfields hit a respectable 231 after losing a number of wickets. A fine fielding and bowling display from Churchfields made it difficult for Stivichall to score runs. In a very close final over, Churchfields managed to prevent Stivichall from reaching the required run total. A great team effort from Churchfields earnt them National Champions!

The event was attended by two very special guests to help make the day extra memorable for the young cricketers. Ex-England cricketer’s Vikram Solanki and Mathew Hoggard travelled to Derby to support the ASDA sponsored competition and were the highlight of the day for all the children who had a chance to chat with them, take photos and have their ASDA kwik cricket T-shirts and bats signed. Both Solanki and Hoggard stayed at the ground until the very end of the competition and presented Churchfields with their trophy and medals. Congratulations go to Churchfields Junior School who can consider themselves as the best mixed kwik cricket team in the country! 

In the girls' finals day, The Vale School, who made the effort to travel over 200 miles to be at the national finals, made a confident start to the day by winning their first game in convincing fashion. The Vale School have a number of titles to their name already, including Sussex county champions and South East regional champions. Their form continued as they won their other two group games and progressed through to the semi finals. It was clear to see from their group games that they were going to be in with a good chance of becoming champions.

Their opposition in the semis was St Katharine’s from Dorset. In a close affair, it was The Vale that won the game and proceeded to the final. In the final they met Oakley Junior School from Hampshire. The Vale school bowled first, keeping Oakley down to a reachable score of 239 runs for 4 wickets. The Vale School passed the score set by Oakley, scoring 243 runs and only losing one wicket. In true elation the rest of the team ran on to celebrate with the batsmen who had hit the winning runs and had sealed the victory for The Vale School, making them National Champions!

The event was attended by Katherine Brunt, England Women’s and Yorkshire cricketer, who travelled to Derby to support the ASDA sponsored competition and was a highlight of the day for all the girls who had a chance to chat to Katharine, take photos with her and have their ASDA kwik cricket T-shirts and bats signed. Katharine stayed in Derby until the very end of the competition and presented The Vale School with their trophy and medals. Congratulations go to The Vale School who can consider themselves as the best girl’s kwik cricket team in the country!
