Excellent Start to the Cricket Season
The 1st XI cricket team have enjoyed a successful term so far with excellent wins against Bedford Modern and Nottingham High.
Bedford Modern was the first game of the season and after bowling them out for 121, Stamford quickly reached the required total for the loss of 3 wickets. Nottingham High was a very clinical performance, winning by 59 runs after the team amassed 244 runs in their allotted 40 overs.
The 1st XI have batted very well in the first half of the season, with skipper Sam Evison leading the way on 446 runs at an average of 74. Sam’s 202 not out from just 125 balls against Haileybury was an outstanding achievement and an innings mixed with power, finesse and accuracy. This individual score also equals the school record.
Meanwhile Joey Evison (Year 9) has already scored two centuries this season, opening the batting in his second year as a 1st XI cricketer. This is a remarkable feat for such a young cricketer and he has showed exceptional maturity in achieving his 316 runs at an average of 63.
