Both teams flourished in the group stages, winning all their games in to qualify for finals day.

Both teams performed well at the Finals Day, with the younger team finishing in third place.

Meanwhile, the year five/six team had an exceptional day, with dominant wins throughout the competition.

On the Finals Day, Eastnor's older team triumphed over Stoke Prior 126 runs to 66 in their first match.

They went on to beat Ashperton Primary in the semi-finals 146-40, and then Wigmore Primary School in the grand final, 113-61, to claim gold and be crowned Herefordshire County Champions.

The school's co-headteachers Nicola Driscoll and Sarah Tart, said: "Every single player represented Eastnor Primary brilliantly, not just with their cricketing skills, but also with the enthusiasm and confidence they showed.

“We try to give our children as many opportunities as possible and cricket is very, very popular during the summer term with both boys and girls.

"Reaching Finals Days has been the icing on the cake for the children and we are very proud of the way they conducted themselves.

“It’s fair to say that the memories created will be talked about for some time and it’s been really pleasing to see the sheer joy taking part in the Dynamos Cricket Competition has brought to our school.”
