Cricket Tournament

On Tuesday 4th March the RPHS cricket team travelled to Rutlish School to take part in the Years 7 / 8 indoor cricket tournament. The boys have been training since January for the tournament and displayed a huge amount of confidence. In our first game we played Harris Academy Merton and we ran out comfortable winners winning by a total of 53 runs in the 6 over game.  We then came up against Rutlish A and B teams, which have each won the tournament over the last 5 years. They have players who represent Surrey and Merton alike so getting a result was
going to be difficult. Rutlish B had a tremendous batting display and came out as winners. Against Rutlish A both teams bowled extremely well and Rutlish won in a very tight game. Overall we came a very respectable 3rd and will be playing Rutlish again as soon as the cricket season starts.  Well done to all players involved: Reece Money, Josh Potts, Thomas Large, Danushan Suthakaran, Ajfar Choudary, Yuvakeesan Jeyakumar and Man of the Tournament Rickardo Sukhdeo
