Three Oundle School cricketers, Tommy Simeons (14), Will de Capell Brooke (13) and Will Park (12) together with Laxton Junior pupil, Thomas Kemp (11) have all been selected to captain their respective Northants County Cricket teams this season.
Master in Charge of Cricket at Oundle School, John Crawley (Cambridge University, Lancashire, Hampshire and fifty caps for England) commented: “It is great to see these boys being given the honour of captaining their county teams; it is a just reward for all their hard work. It also highlights the role of Oundle Town CC in their development as well as the School, with the two bodies working beautifully in partnership together. I can't wait to see how all four progress in their cricketing careers at Oundle School and beyond - we will be doing our level best to help them achieve their dreams in their time here."
"The Cricket Club at Oundle School believes that cricket should be a sport for all and that every boy or girl who wants to play should have the opportunity to enjoy this great game as part of a team in a competitive environment which reflects their ability. The programme at Oundle is differentiated to cater for all abilities, from the social cricketer to those who harbour a desire to play the game professionally.”
