A girl’s street cricket team maintained its 100 per cent record with a second tournament win in three months.
Redbridge Rangers, based at Woodbridge High School in St Barnabas Road in Woodford Green, emerged victorious at the PlayOn tournament yesterday.
The project is run by Streetchance, an initiative run by the Cricket Foundation which uses cricket to engage young people from a range of backgrounds in areas affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
Hannah Newman, leader of Streetchance East London Girls project, said: “We are a fairly new project, having started up last May. We have now won two out of two competitions that we have entered.
“It was fantastic to see the girls grow in confidence throughout the day and great to see all their hard work pay off in the end.”
Sessions are free and run on a Friday evening between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
