CHULMLEIGH Cricket Club hosted the second annual Primary Schools Kwik Cricket Festival on Friday.

Seven schools from the Chulmleigh Community College area took part, with over 70 boys and girls playing four games each.

Witheridge A team played some excellent cricket and were overall winners, scoring over 600 runs. But they were pushed hard by Kings Nympton, High Bickington, Lapford and Winkleigh in some closely fought games and the outcome was not decided until the last match.

If you are interested in learning and playing cricket contact Dave Gidney at Chulmleigh Cricket Club on (01363) 84739 or dagidney@yahoo.co.uk or contact your local club to find out if they also offer youth cricket.
