Youngsters studying at the Thomas Wolsey Ormiston Academy, in Ipswich, will be representing Suffolk at Lord’s, on Thursday, at the Lord’s Taverners Table Cricket Finals.

A team from the school is heading to the home of cricket to battle it out against 11 other schools as they look to be crowned champions of the national competition organised by the Lord’s Taverners, the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity.

Helen MacDougall, principal of Thomas Wolsey, said: “Everyone at Thomas Wolsey is very excited to be able to play at Lord’s and to represent our school and Suffolk at the Table Cricket Finals day.

“It’s fantastic to see how the pupils have developed both as individuals and a group since they started playing table cricket - giving them the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, tactics, be part of a team and also have fun. It’s going to be a great day at Lord’s but also a tough competition and we are really looking forward to it.”
