Sports Round-up w/c 05 June

Although the weather was awful this week, several King's teams experienced some sporting success.


Four of our tennis teams played Stanground College in league tennis matches on Wednesday. All of the players took a while to adapt to the blustery conditions, but eventually it was the King's players who coped best and dominated the majority of the matches. The U15 Boys' B team, led by Tom Ward and Lloyd Durno, produced a string of impressive results and eventually won 12-0, with Usman Talat and William Lamin completing the team. The U15 Girls' team, consisting of Katie Wright, Tessa Hoyland, Charlotte Sethna and Iris Powell, followed the boys' lead and also won 12-0. The U13 Boys' B team made it a hatrick of clean sweeps, also winning 12-0, thanks to some great tennis from Alistair Clark, Robert Aylmore, Joseph Green, Ryan Thomas and Francis Antonio. Unfortunately the U13 Girls' team couldn't quite make it a complete clean sweep, but they still managed a victory 8-4, the team consisting of Charlotte Bennett, Carys Attwell, Mia Setchfield and Pippa Payne.


The U13 Boys' cricket team played their first outdoor hard ball match of the season on Thursday when they took on Hampton College in a 16 over match at Hampton. Captain Alistair Clark won the toss and opted to bowl on a very green wicket. Despite some rather loose bowling at times (giving away 33 runs in extras!) from our 9 bowlers, we managed to restrict our hosts to 55 for 8 thanks to some great individual bowling and some sharp fielding. The pick of the bowlers was Felix Anderson who finished with figures of 2-10, but a special mention must go to Ismael Khalid who conceded only one run from his 2 overs! In the field there were run outs for Ismail Yasin, Ollie Jones and Joe Saunders, while both Duncan Hoyland and Alistair Clark took good catches. In reply, with the bat, King's made light work of their low target, knocking off the required runs with 6 overs to spare, with the loss of only 3 wickets. Captain Alistair Clark was impressive with the bat, making a solid unbeaten 20 runs.

Junior Tennis

 JD tennis players from Years 3 and 4 took part in the district round of the mini tennis tournament this week. King's entered 4 teams in the event, with all teams playing a round robin of matches against three other schools and the winners playing off in the final. Our B and C teams played well throughout the tournament and made good progress, but found the going tough. The A team however, played some great tennis and were unlucky not to win their group, eventually finishing as runners up by one point. They bounced back however in the third/fourth play-off match to win and claim third place overall.
