Girls’ U13 IAPS Cricket, Regional Champions 

Our Assistant Director of Sport writes about the Tournament:

I don’t quite know where to begin; it was a day of so much excitement. In this U13 IAPS tournament, all schools had to play everyone. There were some familiar faces: Farleigh and Hall Grove, along with teams we do not usually face in our weekly fixtures: Clifton, Walhampton and Westbourne Prep.

What was great about the format of this IAPS competition, was that a school couldn’t rely on having two or three good players to win them the game; every player had to bowl, and every player had to bat. We were very lucky in as much as every single member of this team can be relied on to bat and bowl, and they showed every opposition they faced their enthusiasm and talent.

It was some of the best cricket I have seen this team play. With different tactics compared to our T20 games. We were looking to score off every ball and made sure we ran the first run quickly always on our guard watching that there were no unnecessary wickets from being run out. Our fielding inning showed the knowledge this team has gained; changing and adapting their field, unbelievable run outs and catches. It was truly impressive.

It was wonderful to see each member of this team win a thoroughly deserved gold medal on your their last IAPS representing Lambrook.


Inaugural Girls’ 100 Cricket Festival










The cricket momentum kept going after the exeat weekend with our very first Girls’ 100 Cricket Festival. It was great to host Hall Grove and St Andrew’s Eastbourne at Lambrook for  a fabulous day of cricket. It was perfect cricket weather and the Edrich Oval looked resplendent with the Pavilion decked out with hanging baskets.

The Year 7 and 8 Girls were wonderfully supported by the rest of Year 8 Boys and Girls. Both Lambrook teams enjoyed great games winning their matches in a fantastic display of cricket on both sides.

These teams are leading the way for the younger year groups and we are looking forward to the 2025 cricket season already!
