U13 Cricket. The Year 8 cricket team have had a much improved season this year, with highlights so far being 3 victories most notably by 9 wickets against Ravens Wood and making the 3rd round of the Kent Cup where a narrow defeat to Chis and Sid saw them eliminated. There has been a real improvement in the technique of all the players and this bodes well for the future as they try to build on the big steps forward made this season.
Meanwhile, this is a strong year group for U15 cricket team - they have achieved much in their years at St. Olave’s and developed into a good group of friends capable of some exceptional performances. Highlights this season include a win over Skinner’s with Hassan Rahij claiming 5-15 with his mystery spin, and defeating Sevenoaks by 55 runs with Sohayl Ujoodia scoring 75 not out. It has been a great pleasure to work with this squad and my thanks go to captains Matt Lane and Sohayl Ujoodia for their leadership.
