Early Season Cricket Representation

County Representation

Despite the meteological challenges, there have been some cricketing successes to share already and it is safe to say that the abnormally wet weather thas not dampened cricket spirits at Scarborough College altogether.

Old Scardeburgians Cian Dickinson and Jack Carney represented Lancashire 2nd XI and Kent 2nd XI respectively while current Year 12 student Matty Firbank was called up to represent Yorkshire’s 2nd XI.  Everyone at the College is extremely delighted with Matty’s call up, which is a huge privilege for someone of Matty’s age, though of course thoroughly deserved.

Continuing with call-ups, four students were called up to represent Yorkshire’s U18 Emerging Players’ Programme (EPP).  Ben Squires, Ibrahim Ahmed, Joe Thompson and Matty Firbank will take on Worksop College next week.

College Successes

Our U17 Boys gave a very good account of themselves at a pre-season cricket festival wonderfully hosted by Bradfield College. In a field mainly made up of U18 sides, our U17s won three and lost three during their time in Berkshire.

The U15 boys managed a glorious victory by seven wickets over Durham County Champions Monkwearmouth Academy on Tuesday. This was the first round of the ESCA U15 One-Day National Cup. Mr Rinke would like to extend a huge thank you to Driffield Cricket Club who kindly hosted this fixture. You can find the scorecard by clicking on this link.

As a testament that the weather will not stop us, the U12 Boys played a trial game on the Astroturf earlier this week and enjoyed an early season win.  And last but not least, our Senior Girls played an indoor fixture against York University with the spoils going to the Scarborough College girls.

Thank You!

Many congratulations to all players on their individual successes, all the teams and coaching staff. A huge thank you to our Grounds staff. This has been an extremely tough few weeks and we truly appreciate the incredibly hard work. We look forward to updating you on more cricket successes soon!
