Cricket: Third Former selected for the Warwickshire U14 squad

Thursday 26 January 2012

George Panayi (Ch 3) has represented Hertfordshire Cricket Board up to the U13 age group, and in moving to Shrewsbury and the Midlands, wanted to pursue age group cricket with a major first class county.

George PanayiGeorge trialed at Edgbaston last summer and again in November, and has been successful in being selected for the U14 Warwickshire winter training group. He will take part in the Warwickshire District Festival in May, and hopes to gain selection for the summer squad which takes part in the ECB National U14 County Competition.


His housemaster writes, 'George is also making a name for himself as a talented a school rugby and fives player, the latter a new sport for him, but which he sees as very useful for his development as a cricketer. As if this weren't enough to juggle, he is also a music exhibitioner, playing the double bass, piano and singing. But perhaps more important than any of these qualities, he is as pleasant a young man as you could possibly hope to meet, and has been a terrific addition to the Churchill's community.'
