Celebrating cricket, Windrush families & girls in sport

Kerry-Ann loves cricket – it’s in her DNA – her Jamaican grandpa taught her to play as soon as she could hold a bat! Whenever she can, Kerry-Ann heads to the local club with her friends – including Amardeep – her best friend.

But now some of the club”s older players – those in the elite First XI – have decided that the cricket club belongs to them only – and that Kerry-Ann and her team are not welcome.

So Kerry-Ann devises a daring plan – a brilliant way to beat the bullies through teamwork and fair play. And unbeknown to her, she’s about to get some very unexpected help with her fight.

A time slip tale with a touch of magic, Kerry-Ann experiences what life was like for her Jamaican grandpa when he first arrived in England as part of the Windrush generation. And she discovers that she must follow in his footsteps in order to continue playing the game they both love.
