On May 22nd 30 schools participated in the BaylorIC Worldwide Cricket Festival which was hosted at Bacon’s College in Southwark, London. Over 200 children took part on a hot and sunny day.
Martin Warrow from Supreme Engraving sponsored the tournament by donating the cup.
Andrew King From THE INCREDIBLE CRICKET COMPANY provided the cricket sets to enable all of the children to be able to play cricket during the festival and was also a great help on the day umpiring.
A massive THANK YOU to all the coaches that umpired on the day (Voluntary) a Glyn,Wilson from Bacon’s College plus the young people from St. Thomas The Apostle for making this day a success. I have to add that without the support of Bacon’s College to be able to host the event, Incredible Cricket to provide the equipment and Supreme Engraving- This event wouldn’t have happened.
Thank you to all the schools which participated in this fantastic festival and also to Bessemer Grange whom were crowned 2012 Southwark Schools Cricket festival champions. Townsend School, the beaten finalist played some very good cricket to reach the finals so well done!
On a closing note it was great to see so many young people playing cricket and enjoying the sport. It’s moments like these I will always cherish. To have an impact on a young person’s life positively and giving them another option apart from football to participate in an activitiy outside of school which will engage them, instill discipline and help develop social interactive skills means so much to me. This really is why I decided to develop BaylorIC Worldwide- “To Create Champions on an off the field”
EVERY child that participated in this festival will be receiving a certificate to remind them of what a great day they had and plans are in place to also ensure that they can be signposted to the nearest cricket club.
They say pictures say a thousand words, but guess what.. we have a bit of video to add.
