Schools Kwik Cricket Festivals
Essex Cricket in partnership with Competition Managers, School Sports Partnerships and Cricket Clubs in Essex, run the annual ASDA Schools Kwik Cricket Festivals in Essex and Metropolitan London Boroughs for children aged 9-11yrs (School years 5 and 6)
Schools in every school sport partnership (local family of schools) compete against each other at a local level with the aim of being crowned the School Sport Partnership winner. The winning team or teams of each school sport partnership then qualified for the Essex ASDA Kwik Cricket County Mixed Final which was held at Billericay Cricket Club on Tuesday 28th June 2011 or the Essex ASDA Kwik Cricket County Girls Final which was held at the Ford County Ground on Wednesday 29th June 2011.

Essex ASDA Kwik Cricket County Mixed Finals Day
On Tuesday 28th July 2011, 22 schools from Essex and Metropolitan turned out in force to Billericay Cricket Club for the County Mixed Kwik Cricket Finals 2011 on a very overcast day but this did not dampen the enthusiasm of the young participants.
With over 200 school children taking part in the tournament all schools had to be split into 6 groups. Every group played in a round robin event leaving an overall group winner at the end to progress through to the next stage of the County competition.
With the competition running on all 6 pitches, the mascots of Essex Cricket Eddie and Ellie made an appearance entertaining the school children by going around the whole ground bowling and batting in the nets and dancing along with the children doing the conga. ASDA also came along with a wide variety of fruit and drinks for the children and enjoyed having a picture taken with Eddie and Ellie. We thank the ASDA staff from the Basildon store for coming along to the successful day.
The group winners from the day were Epping, Churchfields, St Marys, Rolphe, R.A. Butler and Lathom. All 6 progressed to the play-off stage with R.A. Butler and Lathom receiving byes to the semi-finals after a draw took place at the morning briefing.
With the two play-off matches being played rain intervened on a fantastic day of cricket leading all the remaining school participants taking cover in the pavilion. With the persistent rain the pitches had become too dangerous to have any further play so it was decided by the six remaining schools in the competition that a bowl out would finish off the day’s proceedings in the bowling lane.
Whilst the bowl out took place Scott Styris came along and signed autographs, had pictures taken with children and parents and awarded all the medals and trophies out to the runners-up and winners of the competition.
The winners from the Bowl Out and going through to represent Essex in the Regional Kwik Cricket Competition at Mildenhall are R.A. Butler and Churchfields.
We would like to thank all the schools that took part in the County Kwik Cricket Finals day at Billericay CC and wish R.A. Butler and Churchfields the the best of luck in the next stages of the ASDA Kwik Cricket competition.
Essex ASDA Kwik Cricket County Girls Finals Day
On a hot sunny day came the Girls County Kwik Cricket Final at the Ford County Ground on Wednesday 29th July 2011 with over 200 participants taking part in the finals day.
The 21 schools from all over Essex and Metropolitan London took part and were split into 4 groups and each team played in a round robin event. The winners from each group would progress into the semi-finals.
With no interruptions from the weather the group winners were Arthur Buglar, Lyons Hall, R.A. Butler and Earls Hall. The schools would then progress on to the semi-finals of the competition.
With only two pitches in use, the remaining 6 where used by all the remaining schools and played many friendly matches, with parents even going to the local park and buying ice creams for their school, a very nice refreshment after a day’s play.
The semi-finals consisted of Arthur Buglar playing Lyons Hall and R.A. Butler playing Earls Hall. The winners from the semi-finals were Lyons Hall and R.A. Butler and will now progress to the Regional Kwik Cricket Competition at Mildenhall.
With a 3rd/4th place play off taking place between Arthur Buglar and Earls Hall and the final between Lyons Hall and R.A. Butler were the last matches to take place in the day. 4th Place went to Earls Hall, 3rd Place went to Arthur Buglar, the runners-up of the tournament were Lyons Hall and the eventual county winners were R.A. Butler.
We would like to thank all the schools that took part in the Girls County Kwik Cricket Finals Day at the Ford County Ground and wish Lyons Hall and R.A. Butler the best of luck in the next stages of the ASDA Kwik Cricket competition.
