Wakefield Girls High School and Norwich School have claimed the final two places in the quarter finals of this year’s School Sport Magazine National Schools U15 Girls T20 Cricket Cup.


In a low-scoring last sixteen game in Yorkshire, Wakefield’s 87-8 didn’t look strong enough against a decent Shrewsbury side.


But three wickets from Lucy Dimbylow proved decisive as Wakefield bowled out their opponents for 81 to win by six runs and set up a last eight clash with Norwich School, who overcame Wellingborough more comfortably today.


The other quarter finals clashes will see Berkhamsted play Ipswich School, Bede’s School host Reigate Grammar and Godolphin & Latymer take on Millfield.

Bede’s School are making their mark on this year’s sixth School Sport Magazine National Schools U15 Girls T20 Cricket Cup.


The Sussex side surged into the quarter finals of the competition after amassing one of the largest totals of this season’s tournament so far against King’s School Canterbury.


Mary Taylor (55) and Freya Kemp (48) laid the foundations for Bede’s impressive 196-3 before Taylor ripped through the Kent champions – claiming five wickets for no runs to bowl them out for just 57.


Bede’s will now host Reigate Grammar School in the last eight after the Surrey side saw off London’s Colfe’s School by 78 runs.


Emily Burke hit 63 off just 35 balls in Reigate’s total of 171-5 before three wickets apiece from Jasmine Foster and Millie Hetherington reduced Colfe’s to 93 all out.


Joining them in the quarter finals will be the equally impressive Berkhamsted School, who put paid to finals’ day hosts Felsted’s chances making the big day.


Incredibly the Essex champions were skittled for just 21 runs with Bethan Miles, who had earlier top scored with 56, taking five wickets as Berkhamsted won by 106 to set up a clash with Ipswich School.


Esmae MacGregor impressed for the Suffolk champions with an unbeaten 80 in their total of 173-1 before their opponents Leys School were restricted to 105-7 in reply.


It’s sadly goodbye to the last state school in this year’s competition as Parkstone Grammar succumbed to the greater firepower of Millfield School.


The Dorset side totalled 94-7 before their Somerset opponents won by nine wickets and will now visit Godolphin & Latymer School in the last eight after the Londoners overcame Dauntey’s School by six wickets.

Spare a thought for young Somerset batsman Niamh Holland in this year’s sixth School Sport Magazine National Schools U15 Girls T20 Cricket Cup.


The talented Wellington School pupil enjoyed an impressive start to the season – scoring 263 runs in just three matches, including an unbeaten 103 against Taunton School, 67 not out against Castle School and 93 against Millfield in their county play-off - but it still wasn’t enough to get her side across the line and into the last 16.


Despite helping Wellington to an impressive 144-5 in their 20 overs, Millfield’s Jess Hazell (48no) and India Owen (41) saw their team home with 14 balls to spare in one of the best games of the tournament so far.


The Somerset champions will now play Parkstone Grammar School for a place in the last eight.

YST National School Sport Week aims to inspire schools to use PE and school sport to promote wellbeing and support the personal development of young people.


Every school will have the opportunity to take part in ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ between June 24-28 to celebrate the power of PE and school sport to improve young people’s wellbeing.
