Having been put forward for a trial at the beginning of May at St Edward’s School in Oxford, I am delighted to report that James G has been selected for a Prep Schools’ XI who will face Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wales U12’s in a festival this Sunday. James was informed that he performed extremely well at the training day and according to the Master in charge of Cricket at St Edward’s, Simon Roche, he and the other boys “were real ambassadors for their respective schools”.
James has enjoyed a fine start to his season scoring 46 not out in the 1st XI’s opening match of the season against Ashfold and last Saturday he was picked for Westbury’s 3rd team, alongside Jamie B, for their match against Dinton. We wish James well for Sunday and we are sure the experience of playing with a different cohort of boys will serve him well!
