Redball schools 2nd festival

By Robert Buchan

Cricket shines through the storm

The second Redball primary schools festival day took place at Mannofield today where 180 children from Broomhill, Fernilea, Holy Family, Kingsford, Milltimber and Mile End braved storm Hector to enjoy a day of cricket games.

With the blustry winds making it difficult to bowl and a sudden downpour taking the teams off the outfield a total of 24 games were played with 2278 runs scored and 175 wickets taken, highest team score of the day 108 from Milltimber helped take them to an overall festival total of 337 from their 4 games.

A great day where the children put the skills they have learned during the coaching sessions into practice despite the conditions with smiles on their faces.
