Having spent the last few months learning and practicing the traditional English card game at an after-school club, students invited members of the local community to compete for the Langley School Community Cribbage Cup.

Langley teacher Siv Sears, who has been passionate about playing Cribbage since he was a child, said: “The group of year 7s and 8s got up to a reasonable standard and I wanted to get them a match.

“Unfortunately the kids were whitewashed 6-0 but they put up a valiant fight.

“We’re already discussing a rematch at one of the pubs in Loddon in the near future.”

Having had their first taste of cribbage matchplay and tested out their skills, Langley School are on the hunt for more opponents who are interested in taking them on.
