IT is not just England who are enjoying major cricketing success with their Ashes exploits this summer.

Neale-Wade Academy’s young cricketers have also had an exceptional cricket season, claiming district and county glory.

The Year 7 girls were crowned county champions when they won the annual cricket festival at Fenners, seeing off competition from Perse, Impington, Linton and Witchford Village college.

The Year 8 girls where third and had the honour of being the top state school at the festival.

In the boys competitions the Year 7 and Year 8 teams were district champions, with the Year 8 side finishing runners up in the county competition.

Neale-Wade’s under-15s represented Cambridgeshire at the ECB Chance to Compete Super 8’s at Springfield Cricket club in Essex.

Inspired by a masterclass from England international Eion Morgan, they finished runners-up.
