International Football: Congratulations to Mia E who has again been on England training camp and gained first choice selection for the U16 Girls team against Norway. She has been enjoying the high intensity training and “feeling really sharp and quick on the ball” so, hopefully, this transfers to the pitch and she enjoys success and repeat selection on Wednesday.
Sports Leadership: Once again our Sports Leaders showed their confidence and maturity; this time it was Year 9 during the primary Outdoor and Adventure day at Mount Edgecumbe. As well as responsible problem solving they needed resilience and stoicism during some rainy conditions but again represented Eggbuckland brilliantly. Many thanks also to the parents who dropped off and collected leaders at the Cremyll Ferry.
Cricket: Our final fixture for the Year7/8s showed improvement again and gave us some new players. A close competition with Stoke showed the value of accurate bowling and in our next match we bowled and fielded well against to restrict their total. However, neat and narrow bowling with close catchers kept our own batting total 22 runs short in our final game of 2023. Thank you to all players and parent supporters, especially to Captain Theos P who played with consistency and impeccable etiquette to set the example for our less experienced players.
