As we’ve mentioned in previous blogs, we have some very talented sports people at Northgate and we love to hear about and celebrate their successes.

Ebony Palmer, Year 8 has written the following for us:

Ebony with her trophy.

‘The John Greeves Cricket Award is presented by John Greeves, who is an ex Bircham club cricketer. The award is given for the best performance during the season for anybody who plays for Bircham Cricket Club. I was awarded this trophy for bowling figures of four overs and no maidens and 17 runs, and 5 wickets in an under 14s boys league match. Also I’m the first female to get five wickets for any Bircham team! Every year we have a presentation where you can be awarded a trophy in different categories, but the most amazing thing that night was that John Greeves picked me to have this award as I got 5 for 17.’ 

A huge well done to Ebony for receiving this award. She is putting her cricketing skills to good use representing Northgate too and has already taken part in a competition this season where Northgate were crowned champions!
