U15 Tennis Team

​

On Monday 17th July the U15 tennis team made the long trip to Alderman Peel in Wells to play the Norfolk County Division 2 Final. On a warm day the students played their doubles matches first. Alfie Nicholls and Ben King defeated the number 1 and 2 pairing 6-2 whilst Eddie Mann and Arthur Martins narrowly lost. In the singles games, Ben and Eddie both won whilst Alfie and Arthur were very unlucky to be defeated. This meant the match was tied and a playoff followed. Ben and Alfie took on the number 2 and 3 seeds and comprehensively won the tie break 7-1 to secure the teams second Norfolk Division 2 Championship. This is an amazing achievement and a fantastic way for the boys to conclude their competitive tennis at Acle Academy. The PE department are extremely proud of all you have achieved in the past four years!

U15 Cricket Team

​

On Tuesday 11th July 2017 our U15 cricket team took part in the District Cup Finals Day. In the semi-final Acle batted first against Flegg and the openers Patterson and Utting quickly reached a fifty partnership before the latter was caught. Patterson and Gray then increased the total, but unfortunately Patterson’s innings was brought to an end when he nicked a pacey delivery which was caught by the keeper. Max Littlewood came into bat and scored impressively before he was bowled in the penultimate over. Acle finished their innings with a total of 132 for 4. The Acle bowling attack started strongly with Gray, Littlewood and Mann taking wickets. Catchpole then took two quick wickets to take out the tail enders to complete the win.

    The semi-final win meant the young Acle side would face a strong Broadland side in the final. Acle batted first and the openers scored well before a very deceptive spin bowler dismissed Patterson, Utting and Littlewood. Gray and Mann steadied the ship and scored well to complete an innings total of 109. Broadland started slowly in bat but the openers soon got into their stride to score well. Gray made the break-through in the ninth over and Mann soon took a second. Ringwood then took a couple of wickets as the rain made fielding difficult. This set up a tense finale with Broadland requiring four runs off the final two overs. Exceptional bowling from Mann and Ringwood almost got Acle over the line but they just fell short with two balls to go.

    This was a great achievement for this young Acle side to come runners-up, so well done to the boys!

Year 7 Netball Team

​

Congratulation to our Year 7 netball team  who finished second in the Great Yarmouth district tournament. They were fantastic and this was the first game they have played together.  This is also very historical as it’s the first Acle netball team to come runners up in a netball tournament- excellent work.
