Jade Eccleston Plays Rounders for the England U19 Team

18 July 2016


On a sunny Sunday in St. Helen's, Mrs Lupton found herself at Pilkington Sports Ground where 3 rounders matches were taking place. All matches were international rounders games - England Vs Wales! Our former student, ex Sports Captain Jade Eccleston was representing her country, playing in the U19 team for England. 

The match was amazing to watch. England were very strong batting - hitting balls for miles! Wales' fielding was strong but England seemed to be able to pick out the gaps in the field. 

When Wales came in to bat and England took to the field, Jade made a couple of really vital throws into 3rd and 4th base from out over 1st. England were just too strong for Wales and won the game!

I am immensely proud of Jade for all of her hard work and for making it into the England team. I look foward to following her success in the future!
