Pupils from all three Bute primary schools took part in a Kwik Cricket match in Rothesay this week to round off six weeks of coaching by the island’s cricket club.
Rich Beghin, managing director of Banbury-based Flicx UK, was guest of honour as children from Rothesay, St Andrew’s and North Bute primaries took to a shortened version of the Flicx pitch to play a competitive match following six weeks of coaching from Bute County Cricket Club’s Alan Peacock.
Flicx presented cricket t-shirts to the players who arrived for the game at The Meadows, and Rich gave out medals to all players after the 50 minute game which was won by Rothesay B, made up of Rothesay and St Andrew’s pupils.
Starting with a score of 200, Rothesay B finished on 221 after six overs, whereas their rivals, Rothesay A - made up of pupils from Rothseay and North Bute primaries - scored 207.
After the match, members of the Bute County Cricket Club had great fun in a game against all the children. Who won and who lost was not recorded!
