Junior School Sports Roundup – 21 june 2021

Over 70 children played in competitive fixtures this week in our penultimate round of fixtures against other schools. We have as a JS PE Department prided ourselves for many years now in providing a full range of fixtures, so as to get as many pupils representing the JS on our traditional and longstanding matchday Wednesday. 

With the England football team grinding out boring performances this week in the Euros, it was left to our U13/12 boys’ cricket and girls rounders teams to liven up proceedings with great wins against the Duke of Yorks’ School Dover. The cricketers had Dukies in disarray at 10 runs for 8 wickets with Nathan S taking 3 for 6, Rafa BH 2 for 2 and Charlie B. Kanade our signing from Japan took hs first wicket ever having only been taught cricket this term. After a donation of runs totalling 41, St Eds knocked them off for 1 wicket with Joey B finishing on 28 not out. 

The Under11s had 2 close matches against KC with great batting coming from Alex M with 28 not out and bowling of high quality from Morgan TA. 

The girls rounders teams, 13/12 a,b,c won their matches comfortably also against Dukies, with fine all-round performances once again from Daisy B and brilliant play coming from Crystal and Flossie. It has been a tough ask for the girls switching from cricket to rounders, but the teaching of each skill clearly enhances the development of each discipline. 

Swimming across the school is now well underway and the sun even came out twice!!! 

More sport from the JS PE Department next week as we come to the close of the sporting year.
