Summer Term Sports Round Up 1: 3rd May 2024

Although the start to the summer term has been peppered with ‘summer showers’ we have maintained as much of the fixture calendar as possible with both Tennis and Cricket fixtures taking place on the Astro, whilst the first junior athletics event took place at Bramcote.


Weather aside the term started with our U17 cricket team travelled to Bradfield College for pre-season where they faced and defeated notable cricket schools including Radley and Trent College. The first round of the national cup for our U15 boys and girls teams and U18 teams have seen them progress through to the second round with convincing wins of Monkwearmouth School and Ripon Grammar respectively. In preparation for the their National Cup fixture the U17/2nd team defeated Yorkshire Gentlemen with fine performances from Tawana Marumani picking up 3 wickets on debut and Jack Redshaw scoring an unbeaten 106*.

Whilst rain has affected the start of the 1st XI girls teams season they did enjoy a good win against York University followed up by a convincing win against local rivals Pocklington and are looking forwards to putting all the hard work done in winter nets into practice in the National Cup.  Although most of their cricket thus far has taken place on the astro the U12 & 13 sides have not let this dampen their sprints, quite the opposite in fact when the 12’s and 13’s faced off against each other in a thrilling game that came down to the last over. The 12’s also enjoyed a good win against Tranby which puts them in a good position to play Caedmon in the first round of the cup.

Throughout the winter our Centre of Excellence students have worked tirelessly under the guidance of Mr Rinke and Mr Guy and it is fabulous to see the fruits of this hard work coming in representative honours for a number of students. Matthew Firbank and Joe Thompson have both been selected and played for Yorkshire 2nd XI with Joe scoring an unbeaten 56 on debut. Ibrahim Ahmed and Ben Squires both represented Yorkshire EPP in a convincing win against Worksop College with Ben also playing against Durham Academy this week. These are incredible achievements and hopefully the start of a long and successful summer.


Away from the cricket field, our Equestrian team, after a fantastic and successful year, are travelling down to represent the College at Royal Windsor. This is a hugely prestigious event and we are incredibly proud of the team and everything they have accomplished this year and wish them the very best of luck this weekend.


An exciting term of Athletics lies ahead and after training through the wintery dark nights with wind and rain it was a delight to see the sun shining on the first Junior track meet at Bramcote Track which saw schools from the local area competing against our prep students. Following the district trials, 16 of our students have qualified for the County round qualifier in York another excellent achievement and congratulations to those students.


The summer has started brightly for our U13 and U15 girls with our 13’s winning all their matches at the district tournament and the 15’s with a great win against Queen Margarets in their first LTA divisional match. The honours were evenly split this week against Pocklington in the U14 & 15 boys and girls fixtures whilst our U18’s travelled away to St Peter’s.


Golf continues to develop with more and more fixtures, this week our Junior Golfers travelled to play Rossall in an ISGA tournament. Both boys played superbly however, a single figure Spanish international proved too much in the end.

We are looking forward to an action packed summer of sport at Scarborough College and as always please continue to update me with your child’s endeavours and successes away from College.
