1st XI Cricket Tour Summer 2017


The 1st XI squad embarked on their inaugural pre-season tour to play St Andrew’s Pangbourne and Moulsford in Oxfordshire. These are both Prep schools with over 300 pupils so the standard was very high, but our boys gave a very good account of themselves. Not only did we play and compete well in both matches, but we also enjoyed the extensive grounds and accommodation at St Andrew’s and trained at the impressive facilities at Moulsford. It proved to be the best way to start a cricket season and all the boys improved as a result. Many thanks to Mark Lapping for introducing the schools to us and accompanying us throughout the tour and to Luke Caswell for leading the coaching sessions and giving plenty of advice to the boys. If they take note and put this into practice they will have a successful season. I hope this proves to be the first of many.
