Loreto College Cricket Club took part in a triangular tournament organised by the North West Cricket Union on Tuesday May 9th. The event took place at St. Columb's College, Derry and also involved Oakgrove Integrated College, St Columb’s College as well as ourselves.
The team acquitted themselves well, winning one game against Oakgrove but losing to St. Columb's. The matches were organised on a limited overs and maximum participation format which allows each player to participate in each of the three skill sets of the game: batting, fielding and bowling.
Three pupils made their debuts at this competition, Cathal Christopher, Cameron Sinclair and Noah Grove. We wish them and the other squad members future success in the game during their time at Loreto.

The team members were: Theo Wall (Year 11), Cathal Christopher, Hirek Cichy, Luke Denton, Matthew McGowan, Christian Quigley  Oisin McCrudden and Michael McConnell (all Year 10), Cormac Carr (Year 9), Cameron Sinclair and Noah Grove (Year 8).

Team coach Mr J Kildea reports that there were two standout moments (or champagne moments as the commentators on Test Match Special would refer to them!) when Cathal and Cameron took difficult catches to dismiss an opponent when we were fielding.
