On a cool day at Stocksfield Cricket Club, Ponteland High School U15 girls put on a warming display to convincingly win the Northumberland ‘Chance to Shine’ cricket festival.

The girls overwhelmed opposition from Walbottle, John Spence, Sacred Heart and St Thomas More, running out convincing winners in scoring an average of 80 runs per seven over innings.

The team have qualified to represent Northumberland at the regional final, where they will face tougher opposition, but are confident that they can build on their success so far.

Head of PE Allan Atkinson said: “They are a great bunch of girls with outstanding team spirit. I am sure they will once again rise to the occasion at the regional finals.”
