Today our boys cricket team played their County Finals Tournament at St Cross Cricket Club. The team had previously qualified by winning a competition at Hursley Park. The competing sides were split into groups with every one playing every other school in their pool with the most successful teams making it through to the quarter finals. Fair Oak began with a narrow five run defeat to Oakley. Our next match against Wimborne ended in a Fair Oak victory by ten runs. Springhill were our final opponents in the group stages and Fair Oak ran out convincing winners by a margin of seventy one runs which was enough to book a place in the quarter finals against St Marys. In this fixture, Fair Oak batted first and reached a formidable total of 306 for 2. In response, St Marys never looked like reaching their target and ended on 244 for 4. This meant that Fair Oak went through to the semi-final to face South Farnborough. In this fixture, South Farnborough batted first scoring 266 for 5. Fair Oak were right in the run chase and needed eleven from the last over but unfortunately fell short, ending on 256 for 5. Our boys should be proud of their efforts today in reaching the semi-finals of the County competition. Well done boys!

The Year 5 County Cricket Finals took place today at West Hill Park School in Titchfield. Both our A and B teams had qualified for this event which is a fantastic achievement.

Fair Oak B began with a narrow defeats to both Park Gate and St Michael’s. The final group game was a tough fixture against a very strong Abbotswood and unfortunately Fair Oak lost this match too by a margin of sixty runs. Our A team began their campaign with a six run win against Bosmere and then lost to Spring Hill by twenty one runs. The final fixture was against Hook with Warsash and this match also ended in defeat, this time by just a single run!

Our boys cricket team played their County Cup Finals day today at Havant Cricket Club. In the semi final Fair Oak were drawn against Oakley which would be a difficult contest. Fair Oak batted first and posted a score of 259. Some superb bowling and fielding from Fair Oak put real pressure on the Oakley team who fell short of their target by six runs! This meant that Fair Oak would play in the final against the winners of the other semi final, Brockenhurst who had beaten Droxford. Brockenhust won the toss and decided to bat. Some great shot making meant that Brockenhurst ended with 280. In response, Fair Oak were positive from the start but unfortunately lost wickets at regular intervals, ending on 224. Well done to Brockenhurst who played really well to win the cup but real credit must also go to Fair Oak who played brilliantly throughout the competition to finish as county runners up!
