Alumni Cricketers, Bat Together Again!

We are thrilled to hear form alumnus James Allen (2004-17) , filling us in on a recent RGS cricket reunion.

On Friday 5 August, an RGS Old Boys XI took on a Kings Old Boys XI in the first ‘Hundred' cricket fixture to be played between the two sides. The RGS Old Boys team consisted mainly of players from the 2017 Festival winning school side. They elected to bat first and raced to 68 off the first 30 balls before losing their first wicket. RGS finished on an impressive total of 155 for 5 off their 100 balls, with runs predominantly coming from captain James Allen, Sam Hughes and Callam Turner. 

In reply, Kings Old Boys batted well but the regular fall of wickets made their chase difficult. They reached a total of 144 for 8 with George Cook and Will Reading each taking 2 wickets. 

It was a very enjoyable event for all involved and played in a wonderful spirit. A great opportunity to catch up with players and supporters from both teams, with many enjoying the social aspect later into the evening. We all look forward to next years fixture.

Taking part were, Callam Turner, Will Reading, George Cook, Robbie Watts, Ben Sutton, Benjamin Allen, Alfie Cook, Sam Hughes, James Allen, Alex Wheeler, Luke Allen
