PCA England Masters triumph at Stamford School
On the 27th July, Stamford School was delighted to witness some of the biggest names in professional cricket play against our very best local players, in an invitation XI team put together by Dean Headley. Thousands of students, parents and locals enjoyed a spectacular day of cricket basked in glorious sunshine at the Stamford School pavilion.
The biggest star of the day was ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, and the children were thrilled to have an opportunity to speak to their hero and get his autograph. Freddie continued to impress as he started his batting with two outstanding sixes which he smashed into the sight screen. Fours and sixes continued to be the order of the day as the England Masters triumphed, scoring 238 runs for seven.
The day was extremely successful and everyone involved felt part of the cricket extravaganza. Local children were able to compete in a mini kwik cricket tournament in the morning, and they felt honoured to receive medals presented by their heroes.
Dean Headley, Cricket Coach at Stamford School, said “It turned out to be a great day. We had lovely sunshine, some great entertainment, and it’s all for a good cause which is the most important thing.”
