They hammered 989 runs in their four matches, narrowly defeating Ramnoth, who scored 961.
Nine other schools took part in the competition, organised by Fenland District Council’s sports development team at Wisbech Town Cricket Club. They were Wisbech St Mary, Leverington, Elm, Peckover, Kinderley, Gorefield, St Peter’s, Elm Road and Friday Bridge.
Payne’s players received a special trophy from Chris Ferguson from Asda,who are the national sponsors of the ECB schools Kwik cricket programme. They also provided water and snacks for all the children.
The teams from Payne and Ramnoth were presented with T-shirts from the Cambridgeshire Cricket Board, which also provided certificates for all the participants.

Councillor Ralph Butcher, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for health and wellbeing, was among the spectators. He said: “Sport is a fantastic way of getting fit and staying healthy and it’s great to see so many children enjoying a competition they’ve been building up for throughout the school term.”
The winners and runners-up had been invited to theASDA Kwik Cricket Cambridgeshire county final at Cambridge but unfortunately they couldn’t attend because the date clashed with a Year 6 Careers Convention in Wisbech.
