When Bayley’s Primary’s opening batsmen walked to the crease yesterday morning no one could have predicted how their match in the Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools’ Cricket Competition would unfold.

Not only did Romario Alleyne and Latrel Greenidge both score unbeaten centuries playing against St Philip Primary, they also posted the highest ever opening partnership in the history of the competition, 339.

Alleyne blasted 147 not out, his second century in as many matches, and Greenidge notched his first, an unbeaten 142 as Bayley’s won by 294 runs after bowling out St Philip for 43.

At Inch Marlow, St Winifred’s also created history, this time being bowled out for the lowest total ever – two – by St Christopher.

Congrats to the boys from Bayleys! However, the second part of your article is incorrect. St. Winifreds were not bowled out for 2 in their match against St. Christopher. They made 51 for 7 in their 25 overs.

This pair reminds me of a younger version of my Combermere cohorts Ashby & Craig. Congrats youngsters, bat on, bat on. Continue to apply yourself to the task at hand. Listen to your coaches as they're there to help. Always thank them along with family and friends for the support/encouragement they render.

Don't neglect the academic part of your life either; very important. And above all, always give praise, honor, glory and thanks to the One who set life in motion so that you could be born, the Lord GOD Almighty. He has blessed you with the ability to play the game. I wish you continued success in the game as well as in life.
