KIRKBURTON are the North East Kwik Cricket champions!
The primary school won the Asda-sponsored title at Headingley Carnegie, beating Holme on Spalding Moor from East Yorkshire in the final.
And they qualified for the national final at Grace Road in Leicester, which is supported by a member of the England team.
Twelve schools took part in Leeds, split into three groups of four, with the three winning schools and the best runner-up going into the semi-finals.
A total of 130,000 young students have taken part in the competition across all counties. At Headingley (pictured), 160 Year 6 boys and girls took part.
As sponsors of the event, Asda handed out food and drink to the young players to promote a healthy eating message.
A modified format of cricket, focusing on the game’s core skills and rules, Kwik Cricket has involved almost one million children in its structured county, regional and national competitions since its inception in 1988.
The Schools involved were:
Kirkburton, Todmordon, Ghyllroyd, Holme on Spalding Moor, Wheatlands, Brampton, Ellis, Lingfield, St Wilfrids, Hertford Vale, Driffield Bethune Park and St Richards.
