This week, all our cricket teams did outstandingly well and we couldn’t pick one team… so both UNIfied and the Sport’s President chose them all!!!

All the teams won well against good opposition with the 1s, and 2s beating Gravesend with our 3s and women’s team beating UKC and 4s beating Canterbury 3s.

Men’s 1’s Captain Jack Wheeler told us discipline is a big factor in the team’s success.

“The main factor would be discipline, we know we have the ability we just need to not be complacent on the pitch, we just need to perform in the right way to get the win. Training has been great for us this year, really putting the boys in some tough situations to make them feel like they are in a match situation, which they’ve responded really well too!

Stuart Dockerill

Wheeler continued to give high praise to Stuart Dockerill for his skill and tactics during the game.

He said: “This week our standout performer was Stuart Dockerill, he was fantastic with bat and ball and pretty much won the game single-handily.

“After playing them twice and beating them twice we are confident but we know Varsity is completely different, more nerves, more on the line, if we are not complacent then we will put ourselves in a really good position to win at varsity.”

This week also saw the return of the women’s cricket team and they got off to a great start, beating UKC by 2 wickets.

Player Anastasia Hampson believes that training hard will bring the team success at Varsity.

She said: “I think the main factor that helped us to win was telling the girls not to be nervous and to go out to enjoy themselves.

“Not much training went into this match as it has been very difficult getting everyone together and due to this I have great hopes for varsity.”

 

Have a well deserved break for the holidays, C4!
