A NEWHAM school will be heading into the unknown when they represent Essex in the East of England Kwick cricket finals today (Thursday).
Pupils from Selwyn School in Plaistow will be making the trip to Mildenhall cricket club in Cambridgeshire and teacher/coach Colin Cooper is confident his side will not be overawed.
"Obviously we have not seen the other teams, but just by going what we are like, I am sure we have a really good chance," he said. "We are in a group of four with Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and one other with the top two going through.
"Even if we don't make the top two, there is the plate competition to contest so it will be a great day out.

"Everyone in the team is really looking forward to it and to get this far is already an incredible achievement and the biggest sporting success in the schools history.
"It has done great things for the sporting reputation of the school in the borough and people are starting to talk about us now, so it has been a great experience.
