One of the many visitors supporting the Cricket finals is Charlotte Edwards, the England Ladies Cricket Captain. Charlotte will be presenting the prizes at the end of the day.

Spokesperson for the College, Suzanne Bellis, who has be liaising with the ECB representatives to help organise the event commented, We are delighted to be hosting this event for the third year. The Schools Cricket Academy, established to develop cricket talent, continues to foster good relationships with the English Cricket Board and this year has also seen the England Disabled Squad training at the School.
