Congratulations to Oakmeeds’ Year 8 boys cricket team, who won their match against Downlands in the Mid Sussex Cup Semi Final on Friday 3rd July.
Oakmeeds restricted Downlands to 52 runs with some impressive bowling and a virtuoso hat trick from George Mercer. However, Downlands had a fearsome bowling attack which took some early wickets and had Oakmeeds wobbling. The mid-order batsmen of Joe Smith and Tommy Bowles batted sensibly and effectively to get Oakmeeds over the line with 4 overs to spare.
Oakmeeds will meet The Forest School in the Final and we wish the team good luck.
