Congratulations to Isaac M who was regional finalist in the English Schools FA National Cup.
In paired format, NHIJS U11 team beat Plumtree by 58 runs. Although our batting score was low (38) it was difficult to make contact with the ball as we were facing some erratic bowling (20 wides and 4 too high to reach!). Rui D-M managed a couple of 4’s and we didn’t even include the wides in our total.
We bowled tightly, conceding only 29 runs but crucially taking 5 wickets from 5 different bowlers, so a real team effort. James R and Hector M should be mentioned for being the most improved over the last 3 weeks, their improvement has been great to see. Joshua McK was an effective captain and Oscar M played superbly as wicketkeeper.

U9s and U11s National Semi-Finals
We had three teams who qualified for the EPSCA National Semi Finals at Bristol Grammar School : two Under 11 teams and one Under 9 team. Our Under 11 A team, won three and lost two scoring 15 ½ points out of 25. They finished in = 4th place. The Under 11s B team finished in 11th place on 14 ½ points, winning three and losing two games.
The Under 9s also won three and lost two matches but finished with 12 points and came = 16th.
There were plenty of interesting games and some very good performances by our pupils. I was very proud of them as they all tried their best against some strong opposition. I felt some of the scores did not truly reflect the close nature of some of the matches.
A few individuals need a special mention; Zayan B, playing for the A team on board 4, won all his matches 5/5 and Dean S won 4 out of 5. In the B Team Robert G won 4/5
In the Under 9s Suban Y won 4/5
