Shrewsbury School

Cricket Tour to Australia (8th - 23rd December 2017)

Friday 12 January 2018

The 1st XI Cricket Tour to Perth, Australia for a very young development team (Fourth Form to Upper Sixth) proved to be both successful and enjoyable.

Andy Barnard reports:
The side only lost one match throughout the entire tour.  Whilst our batting remains a concern, a number of players showed real application and grit to help the team to victories.

The destination was a perfect environment for the group to progress their cricket and come together as a strong unit.

Given that there were a number of players who were sadly not able to make the tour because of injury, the prospects for the upcoming summer season are encouraging.

Playing Record:   Played 9   Won 6   Lost 1   Abandoned 2
