OE v School Cricket

Full of action!

The OE v School 1st XI cricket was played in a T20 format on a warm sunny evening. The OEs batted first scoring an impressive 121 runs for 7. After a break for suitable refreshments the School replied with some impressive play and despite accurate fast and spin bowling built up the runs rapidly with Sam Corney reaching his half century in 45 minutes. The OEs took two wickets but lost the game when another decisive 4 took the School to 122 runs.

Director of Alumni Relations John Davidson said: "It was a very enjoyable game exciting and full of action with both sides taking chances on quick singles as well as hitting out to the boundary."
