Cricket Team and Player of the Week


Player of the Week
It was a quiet week and only a few games were played, but the players are still keeping up some excellent performances. Riley Jarrold bowled immaculately to finish with 4 overs, 1 maiden and 3 wickets for 4 fours in the 1st X1 win over the Old Wilsonians. The same match also saw Dan Moore hit a crucial 48 not out. In the U12 game Arnav Patnaik (20), Will Evans (26 not out on his A team debut) and Udith Molanguri (30) were in the runs before Udith bowled well to take 3-5. Year 8 Jackson Ellis made his 1st X1 debut in the win over Wallington Grammar at their Open Evening, bowling well to take 1-26 and it's from this match that we have our Player of the Week. He's waited all this time to score his first ever half century for the school, but in his last game for Wilson's, Eugene Carr hit a match winning 54 not out. Happy memories for him and the Player of the Week accolade to go with it too.

Team of the Week
Quite an easy decision this week. With a win over our local rivals and a very pleasing victory, despite some early batting dramas against the Old Wilsonians, the 1st X1 is the Team of the Week.
