Cricketers at Great Dunmow Primary School are hoping to field more success at a county final next month.

The boys will play in the County Kwik Cricket finals after beating the local competition at a district tournament.

Coach Karl Pearce said: "Held at the beautiful grounds of Saffron Walden Cricket Club, the boys from Great Dunmow beat teams from St Mary's in Stansted, RA Butler, Great Chesterford and Katherine Semar."

When fielding, Dunmow were able to restrict the opposition to limited run-scoring opportunities and when batting, they quickly chased down their total.

All 10 members of the squad, led by captain Lewis Hayes, contributed to ensuring that Great Dunmow reached the final.
