Rhiwbeina Primary girls are Kwik Cricket champs

Congratulations to Rhiwbeina Primary School’s young cricketers! The girls Kwik Cricket team are the champions of South Wales.

The girls were among more than 300 children from 30 schools across the region, who took part in the South Wales Kwik Cricket finals at St Fagan’s Cricket Club.

The finals day, organised by Cricket Wales, marks the culmination of all the festivals run in cricket clubs and local authorities across South Wales.

Rhiwbeina Primary School got through to the final match, where they beat Mary Immaculate of Haverfordwest to take the honours.

They now go through to represent South Wales in the Midlands finals in Birmingham.

David Lloyd, of Glamorgan CCC, was on hand to present the trophies to the finalists and T-shirts and certificates to all other schools.

“The aim of the Kwik Cricket competition is to provide children of all levels of ability and experience with an opportunity to regularly participate in a fun, introduction to cricket and to encourage the spirit of cricket,” explained Steve Watkins, Cricket Development officer for Gwent and Mid Wales Council, who organised the event for Cricket Wales.

“This was another excellent competition, and we all wish Rhiwbeina and mixed-winners Evenlode the best of luck as they represent South Wales at Midlands Finals.”

Cricket Wales is the national governing body for junior and recreational senior cricket in Wales. It works closely with Glamorgan County Cricket Club, which governs the men’s professional game. For information visit
