U12 Cricket Team Crowned Yorkshire Champions

Congratulations to our Birkdale U12 cricket team who have won the David English/Bunbury Cup for the first time in 10 years. This great success means that they have become the U12 Yorkshire Cricket Champions.


Having played the previous rounds in the last academic year, the team had to wait until the first day back at school to play the final against The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL) at the New Rover CC in Leeds.

After a very competitive match the team won by a most convincing 9 wickets. This was more than the boys could have imagined before the start of the game. However, it was well deserved after beating GSAL in every department of the game.

Birkdale’s Captain Romir Singh was also presented with the Man of Match trophy along with lifting the U12 Yorkshire Cricket Cup.

This is fantastic achievement by the whole squad who should be hugely proud of their performance. The team will now represent Yorkshire in the national rounds of the competition which will commence in May 2016.
