Year Six pupils from Casterton Primary School in Burnley have been selected to represent Lancashire in the Northern Counties finals.

The nine-strong squad will feature at Harrogate Cricket Ground on Wednesday after overcoming 31 rival teams in a borough knockout at Burnley Cricket Club, and at the Lancashire Schools’ cricket competition at Northern CC in Crosby.

Casterton Primary School’s sports coach Mark Dutton said: “The boys were an absolute credit to the school both in the way they played and the way they encouraged and supported each other.

“It is a fantastic achievement, and the children are extremely excited.”
