Children and staff from St Oswald’s Primary Academy were invited to Headingley to perform the ‘Guard of Honor’ and lead the players out onto the pitch. The children waved large England flags as the England and Australian players entered the playing area.
The children stayed to watch the match and entertained the crowd at half time when they played a game of kwik cricket on the Headingley pitch.
Following the match, which England won, the children were able to stay and meet the players who signed autographs and posed for photgraphs.
Mrs Elam, Deputy Headteacher, said “The children had a fantastic day. They really enjoyed meeting their heroes and getting their autographs. Being able to lead the players out onto the pitch made this a once in a lifetime experience for them”.
