YOUNGSTERS at Mount Pleasant J & I School have proved they are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to playing cricket.
The Lockwood school’s cricket team, which is made up of 10 children from Year 5 and 6, won the West Yorkshire Youth Games at Leeds Metropolitan University.
The school had entered the Kwik Cricket competition, which is open to all year 5 and 6 school cricket teams in the region.
They played four different teams at the event.
The school was awarded a shield which they plan to have engraved, and all the children part of the team received a medal and certificate.
Teacher Maureen Wheeler said: “This is the first year we have got through the heats to make it to the final so to actually win the trophy is amazing.
“I am really proud of all the children. They have done extremely well and they all had a great day on Saturday.
“They are all great role models for the younger children at the school, and I am sure they will further their talent when they start high school in September.”
