Fri, 13 May 2016 11:54

On Thursday 12th may 2016 the COTSSP held its year 3/4 Quicksticks hockey competition. It was a perfect May afternoon with the sun shining for the competition that was hosted at Prince William School, with young leaders from Prince William running the event.

There was some fantastic team and individual performances with the competition being played at a very high standard. All of the children and staff that attended enjoyed what was a brilliant afternoon of hockey. Andy Dale from England Hockey commented on the event saying;

"It was great to see so many children enjoying themselves out in the Sun playing Hockey; I was very impressed with some of the hockey that I've seen tonight and I hope that the children continue to practice and play at their schools, I would like to wish the teams that qualified good luck in the county rounds."

After all the teams competed in 3 different pools the winning team from each pool took each other on in a play-off pool with Nassington coming out on top and progressing on to represent the COTSSP in the county finals round.

Catherine Ibbotson – Warmington School, commented on how good the young leaders from Prince William were saying;

'Thank you for organising & please pass on our thanks to the young leaders- they did a really good job as they always do'.

They young leaders decided that the School Games Value award for passion should go to Kings Cliffe, as their teams showed great passion by cheering and encouraging their team mates as well as other competitors from different schools.

The Grange overcomes the elements to reach Kwik Cricket Finals

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:42

It started off with clouds and then heavy showers but in the end, the Year 5/6 Kwik Cricket team from The Grange won the Daventry Town Kwik Cricket Competition at The Parker E-ACT Academy under clear blue skies.

The competition, supported by Sports Leaders from The Parker E-ACT, saw teams from Ashby Fields, The Grange, Newnham and The Abbey compete for the chance to progress to the South Northants and Daventry SSP School Games Kwik Cricket Finals Day on Thursday 16th June.

Following a brief stoppage when rain interrupted play, the children from each of the schools demonstrated their ever developing cricket skills in the round robin competition. The first round of matches saw The Grange claim victory over The Abbey and Ashby Fields triumph over Newnham. Some strong batting from Ashby Fields gave them the win when they faced The Abbey in the second round of matches and their victory, along with The Grange's victory over Newnham, set up a winner-takes-all decider in final round.

The final round of matches saw The Abbey face Newnham in what turned out to be a battle for third place and The Grange took on Ashby Fields with the winner claiming the competition win and a place in the next round. With Newnham claiming third with a 22-run victory over The Abbey, The Grange went into their match batting first and following some strong batting towards the end of their innings, they built up a total of 226 runs.

Chasing the win, Ashby Fields went on the attack and whilst they were picking up runs, the loss of a number of key wickets allowed the The Grange to take the upper hand going into the final over and despite two 6s and a four being scored, The Grange secured vicory by limiting Ashby Fields to 209 runs - a victory of 17 runs.

The SSP would like to congratulate all of the children for their efforts during the evening and also thank all staff and parents who supported them for their patience with the weather.
