Year 6 Cricket at Oakworth CC

West Yorkshire Cricket Finals

Drax Cup – West Yorkshire finals

Today, our Year 3/4 cricket team participated in the West Yorkshire finals of the Drax cup.

We played 4 games in the group stages. We won our first game due to a tremendous batting performance and some wonderful catches in the field. The second game was narrowly lost. Our third match was tied on runs and wickets so went to a bowl-off. We lost the bowl off in sudden-death – how unlucky. However, we quickly got over this agonizing defeat to win our final match – again thanks to a strong fielding performance and a superb batting performance by our final pair of James and Huey.

We finished 2nd out of 3 teams in our group (just the bowl-off away from qualifying for the semi finals and a possible chance to play at Headingley).

What a season it has been for these players. Each and everyone of our players have improved their cricketing ability greatly in recent months. We have a very strong squad and the future for cricket at Hothfield looks very bright indeed.

Also, the sportsmanship and mutual respect shown by all three teams in our group was an absolute joy to behold. It is this that makes these completions worthwhile. Each team tried their very hardest to win, but were the first to congratulate the opposition if they were beaten.

Mr. Bolland is a very proud Hothfielder this evening.

Well done Natalia, Grace, Archie, Rio, Jack, Evan, Huey, James, Owen and Lennon.

Bradford u11 cricket finals

On Monday our Year 5/6 cricket team played at Bradford and Bingle CC in the Bradford schools’ finals. We won 1 of our 4 group games and finished 8th overall.

We played well but faced some very good teams. Whilst our bowling and fielding was up to its usual best, we perhaps let ourselves down with batting – losing some cheap wickets – especially to run outs. 

A good season overall and plenty to build on for next year.

Well done Ethan, Finlay, Lola, Josh E, Josh L, Joe, Lewis, George, Danyal and James.

Y4 Cricket at Sutton CC

The year 4 cricket team took part in a South Craven cluster competition today at Sutton CC. We won 2 of our 4 matches. 

Our fielding was excellent all afternoon, as was our bowling. We got the hang of running for quick singles as the games progressed, so our run tallies increased. 

Well done to Gracie, Holly, Jorja, Ethan, Finlay, Rory, Oliver, Danyal, Noel and Leo.


Learning to bowl accurately.


Year 6 Cricket at Keighley CC

On Wednesday afternoon, 16 cricketers from year 6 ventured to Keighley.
