Any One for Cricket?

Unbelievably, on what turned out to be dry day in Manchester, 10 Green Lane pupils where selected to represent the school in a SEN school Cricket Competition. The event organised by Lancashire County Cricket Club was attended by six SEN schools from across Greater Manchester.  

The school team were able to use the first games defeat as a learning curve to develop their understanding of the tactics and recognise areas they needed to improve on.

The second game although resulting in a narrow defeat, to the eventual winners, the pupils began to show their skills with both bat and ball, Ryan hitting three sixes on the run.

The following two matches saw Green Lane pupils hitting fours and sixes all over the ground, with some interesting celebrations (Ryan & Louie). This was followed up by an impressive bowling and fielding display: Dean, Luke, McKenzie and Ryan claiming impressive catches to help secure two wins.

The final result of an enjoyable and fun day was that Green Lane Won 2 matches and Lost 2.                              

Well done to all involved.
