The sun was shining and the birds were singing, and Highfields U9 Cricket Team were under way to Ranby to play cricket in the lovely summer sun.[Bowler? Wicket keeper? Report to follow.] Ultimately we were beaten but only by a hair (well, 17 runs actually) so very well done to Highfields U9s who missed a vital practice game against Hill House last Monday but put up a brilliant effort today at Ranby. Thanks to Mr Lewis for accompanying the squad.
