Loreto Under 12 cricketers played our nearest neighbours Coleraine Grammar in the Wesley Ferris Plate on Tuesday 29th May.

This was only our second competitive match and although we eventually lost out to our opponents it gave the squad a really good opportunity to demonstrate the skills that they have been learning over the past three to four months. Inevitably there is a difference between the training ground and competitive play and it is only with exposure to teams that are more experienced than ours that we can continue to improve.

Three of our pupils have also commenced training with Coleraine Cricket Club's Youth Squad on Wednesday evenings and it is very encouraging to see this link being established which will benefit both the school and club teams.

We are also grateful to Miss Graham and Mrs Lagan who accompanied the team and who helped with the donning of helmets, pads, gloves and on what was a gloriously sunny day made certain that the sun cream was applied in a liberal fashion!
