A PRIMARY school near Malmesbury has won the year six North Wilts County Cricket Finals.

Sherston C of E Primary School outshone over 120 teams from across north Wiltshire to clinch the title.

The competition, brilliantly organised by Wiltshire Cricket, attracted mixed teams from both small and larger primary schools.

Despite its modest size, Sherston C of E School displayed outstanding cricketing skills and team spirit, winning all their matches throughout the tournament.

The journey to victory began with Sherston winning the local Malmesbury tournament, which qualified them for Finals Day held at the County Ground in Swindon.

The team’s enthusiasm, supportive spirit, and exceptional cricketing abilities proved to be an unbeatable combination, propelling them to become the Wiltshire champions.

"They played their socks off, and their supportive team spirit throughout the competition was their super power.

"As always they were an absolute credit to our school.

"This victory is, however, not just a testament to the team's dedication in school but also highlights the excellent coaching and facilities provided by Sherston Magna Cricket Club where most of the team also play.

"The school's triumph serves as a wonderful example of how inspiration, teamwork and community support can lead to extraordinary achievements."
