Rounders Competition @ Park

22nd May 2017
Yesterday, in glorious weather the newly formed and trained Bratton Rounders team attended their first ever competition. Playing against three other teams from the Pilton Learning Community, Bratton were competing for one of two places in the North Devon Rounders Festival to be held at Torrington after half term and being the smallest school there, they thought they would have their work cut out! 
Bratton confidently won their first match against Pilton Bluecoat. They went on to score a hat-trick and were unbeaten all afternoon. Mrs Gosling was thrilled with their performance and team work, there were some outstanding hits easily scoring a rounder and many skillful catches. Amy stood out as player of the afternoon for Bratton with her batting skills and understanding of the game which saw her score many rounders and Thomas and Jake worked tirelessly as backstop and bowler. Overall the whole team supported and encouraged each other and Mrs Gosling was so proud of them all. Go team Bratton!!
