Thorpe Hesley Primary School are the latest team to reach the South Yorkshire area final of the 2013 Drax Cup Under 9 cricket competition.

The team topped a group of six primaries to win the Rawmarsh School Sports Partnership stage of the competition, held at Thorpe Hesley cricket club.

Thorpe Hesley scored a maximum 25 points in winning all their matches while Wentworth School were runners-up in the event, which also included teams from St Thomas, Sitwell, St Mary’s and Roughwood.

These six had won through to the partnership final from some 25 schools which competed in earlier cluster rounds.

Thorpe Hesley will now face teams from across the region in the area finals on July 3.

This year is the biggest ever Drax Cup, attracting a record 440 schools from across the county.

Teams play in a series of round robin events to produce four area winners, one from each region of Yorkshire.

These four teams will play the Drax Cup 2013 Finals at Headingley Cricket Ground on Tuesday 9 July.

The competition is sponsored by Drax and organised by Yorkshire CCC. For full details and cometition rules visit www.thedraxcup.co.uk.
