Cricket – Schools’ Cup Success

Congratulations to Grosvenpr’s 1st XI cricket team which secured an impressive victory over Ballymena Academy in the opening round of the Danske Back Schools’ Cup on Wednesday 23rd April.

The team, beginning their defence of the trophy following their victory over Coleraine Academical Institution in last year’s final, achieved a convincing 9 wicket win, with batsmen John Gibson (41 not out) and Aaron Johnston (23 not out) helping the team to comfortably reach their target. 

In addition the School’s 2nd XI was also victorious on the same day, defeating Wallace high School by 6 wickets in The Duke of Abercorn Cup, with fifth formers Daniel Clarke (5 wickets) and Gareth Lammey (28 not out) proving the stars of the show.

Well done to both teams and we wish them the best of luck in the next round of their respective competitions.
