Cricket Season Summary

The 1st XI have enjoyed a superb season playing 13, losing 2 and drawing 1. They only lost to one school side in the Twenty20 National Cup while in the 50 overs version of the game (prior to the end of term BOWS Festival) they have beaten every school side that they have met (including Bedford, Stowe, Oundle and Felsted) and rightly have been rated as one of the best sides in the country.

Individually, there have been some fine performances: Lyndon James and Sam Wolstenholme both scored 1st XI centuries with Lyndon scoring over 600 runs at an average of 130! Two of the most notable bowling performances were by Edward Tattersall (5 for 30 vs Uppingham) and Donald Butchart (5 for 25 vs Oundle). The 2nd and 3rd XIs also enjoyed excellent seasons winning 10 of their 13 matches between them.

The U15A team have become stronger and stronger as the season progressed and they finished by winning the regional final of the National Twenty20 Cup beating King Edward’s, Birmingham and Trent College on Finals Day. They will now take their place at the National Finals at Arundel in September. They also won 9 out of 11 of their normal season fixtures.

Amongst many good individual performances during the season, there were two excellent centuries scored by Alex Anthony and Harry Tyler.  The U15B team also enjoyed a good season with the highlight being a magnificent 148 from Samuel Ball helping the side to go from 54 for 9 to a winning total of 184 against Stamford.

In a very encouraging lower school, with over two thirds of matches won by the four junior teams, one of the highlights was Alex McNulty scoring 138 off 61 balls vs Bilton Grange.  Thrillingly the U12 A-team won the County 20 20 competition on Doncaster Close, beating Loughborough GS in the last over.
