Longhills’ Chance to Shine!


Hull Primary School Indoor Kwick Cricket Championships

In partnership with the Yorkshire Cricket Board, we hosted the annual Primary Indoor Kwick Cricket Championships at the Nuffield Tennis Centre in Hull on Wednesday 11th December 2018. The Championships continue to grow in popularity thanks to the ongoing support from the YCB and their dedicated team who provide a number of our member schools with termly Cricket support through their Chance to Shine program.

Schools competed in a group stage initially with Eastfield, Longhill, Biggin Hill and Wheeler all making it through to the Knock-out round after lunch with all the other team receiving coaching or friendly fixtures. Biggin Hill narrowly beat Eastfield in their semi-final with the closest of games finishing 226 runs to 224! Biggin Hill were joined in the final by Longhill after they secured a 264 – 260 victory over Wheeler in the other semi-final.

Longhill grabbed their opportunity to shine as the outright winners of this years Indoor Kwick Cricket Championships beating Biggin Hill in the final to take home the gold winners meadals! 

We would also like to thank the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation who provided school teams with coaching in between matches. The YCF are launching a new program in Hull called ‘Wicketz’ which will see extra opportunities for young people in Hull to get involved with Cricket in the community across the city – watch this space!
