Organisers were bowled over by the standard of cricket on show as youngsters from across Calderdale took part in the Drax Cup at Copley Cricket Club.

Around 160 year nine school children participated in the annual event, with Beech Hill Primary and Parkinson Lane Primary schools, both Halifax, winning their respective hears.

They will now face schools from across West Yorkshire at Pudsey St Lawrence CC on Thursday 19 June.

Organiser Colin Crowther said: “It’s a very popular event and the standard of cricket is superb.

“The two winners, Beech Hill and Parkinson Lane, have cricket as their predominant sport so they are both very good teams.”
