Cricket: Player of the Week


There were some good early performances as the season got under way. For the U15s Callum Furmidge top scored with 68 and Varun Jain hit 40 not out. In their first game for the school, Udith Molanguri made 48 and Agustya Iyer (photo right) retired on 51 as they put on a partnership of 100. Ibrahim Hossain then bowled well to take 2 wickets for 12 runs. For the 1st X1, Pranav Madan (3 wickets) and George Kellingley (2) bowled well in the City of London Freeman's game, before Jack Shelton (40 not out) and Alex Lane (54 not out) batted superbly. The Player of the Week however for his bowling of 2-11 v Lingfield, 2-8 v City of London Freeman's and for hitting a 6 in the last over in the win against Lingfield is Riley Jarrold, who has previously won this accolade. Congratulations to him.

Cricket: Team of the Week


Both U12 teams got off to winning starts which was great to see. The U14s and 2nd X1 had pleasing victories, but for 2 wins in 2 games, both against independent schools, the 1st X1 are the season's first Team of the Week. The victory against City of London Freeman's was "one of the best all round team performances" Mr Parkinson can remember.
