It was a historic feat! The Josephian Cricketers. Have done the Impossible!
They achieved The Treble!
It was a Colourful Start! On 14th July The Battle of The Saints took place at the Winchmore Hill Cricket Club Grounds, both Teams wearing Coloured Cricket Kits, Black side screens. & White Ball!
The Peterites took first lease & put up a decent score. Sure they were happy with their total.
Then came The Josephians who were keen to take on the challenge!
Yes & they did it in style!
Second round it was The FOC! On the most scenic venue, Merchant Taylor School, Northwood where 28 schools made battle. The Joes got past De Mazenod, Issipatana, Thurstan & Dharmasoka before confronting Traditional rivals - The Peterites & beat them again!
JOES were the FOC Silver Jubilee Champions !!!!
To complete The Treble.....
The annual Saints Quadrangular was on the 11th Aug @ WHCC grounds.
It was St Anthony's, St Benedict's, St Joseph's & St Peter's battling it out.
Petes beat Bens, Joes beat Anthonians to set up yet another. Classic Joe-Pete final!
A closely contested affair it was & The Joes it was Who finally stole the show!
Thus signalled the Schools Cricket Show 2013
