Year 7 and Year 8 boys took part in the Tynedale Hardball Cricket Tournament which was held at the picturesque Corbridge Cricket Club. This coincided with the hottest day of the year (28 degrees Celsius) making the two matches tough to play. Hexham played two games: game one they lost to Corbridge Middle, game two they beat Ovingham on the last bowl. Unfortunately, Hexham ended up in third position due to the other schools having a superior run rate. It was a great afternoon of cricket, thank you to Tom Cant for organising.
