In celebration of Dr Fenton’s sporting legacy, current student cricketers, parents, and old Challoners alike spent an enjoyable day watching two 7-a-side cricket tournaments.
The day kicked off with the Year 10s as three teams, headed by big-hitting left handed Zac Collingbourne, 7-a-side specialist Sid Dey and trusty all-rounder Dom Goodman, battled it out in a round robin tournament. It was an enthralling spectacle of talent, as all three sides scored many sixes, but in the end it was Sid’s team who came out on top.[IMAGE:c85b5e2c]
After a special guest list were treated to a fantastic tapas selection for lunch, play resumed in the afternoon as the Year 8s took their turn to entertain the crowd. This time each team took on the persona of a country in an ‘international tournament’, with the three sides representing England, Australia and South Africa. One member of the South African team even brought a flag and vuvuzela! This tournament was similarly a great display and rounded off an amazing day which was enjoyed by all.
