Cricket Roundup

It has been a successful year so far both on and off the field for the CBA cricket team.

The season started in late April, and the team - which had out in much indoor training over the winter, plus an Easter training camp - has been doing well.

Two friendly games were played as a warm up (CBA lost by 15 runs to Deborough Town and won their match against Thrapston Town by 8 wickets and 35 runs).

In the Fred Trueman Inter School League there has been one win against the Bishop Stopford School team and a defeat against Latimer School.

After an impressive game against Caroline Chisholm School in the Cuthell Cup on May 20th, the team is now into the quarter finals.

CBA won by 7 wickets with Ethan Delargy named as Man of The Match.

Coach Jordon Joseph said: "Great things have happened over the past couple of months to CBA cricket off the field.

"First of all CBA cricket has signed a sponsorship deal with Hampton by Hilton hotel, the money provided will go towards new cricket kit such as shirts and training equipment. 

"CBA has also been provided with a £5,000 Grant from the Cricket Foundation's Chance to Shine programme. The money went towards a state of the art non-Turf cricket pitch which is located between the school rugby pitch and football pitch. The non-turf cricket pitch has a life of ten years which will ensure CBA cricket will be a force to be reckoned with."
