As a partner school of Glamorgan CC and thanks to the efforts of Conwy Cricket Development Officer, Ben Garnett, sixteen pupils from our school were given the opportunity of a lifetime as they attended the second day of the Cardiff Test Match.
We travelled down by coach the night before and arrived at the ground early to collect our tickets and attend a briefing session.
The highlights of the day for our pupils were playing on the pitch during the lunch interval and taking it in turns to act as 'Guard of Honour' as the two teams came onto the pitch. This was a truly thrilling experience for our youngsters as they saw star cricketers and pundits up close. One or two even managed to have a chat with the Australian players.
The behaviour of the children was superb and we are hoping that we will be able to do more work with Glamorgan CC in the future as we continue to develop our cricketing skills.
