Oratory had a mixed season before half-term, but Dan Housego and Ben Howell, both 5th formers, have given them abundant runs. Ben Howell has scored 419 runs in his last five innings. The highlights had been this pair’s 209 partnership against Pangbourne, and a win against Harrow, until last week’s thrilling win against Eton A.

After scoring 245 for 9, Oratory reduced Eton A to 81 for 8. However, Eton’s number 10 Freddie Clark then scored 76 in a partnership of 121 in 16 overs, including 24 off one over, before being run out from the boundary. The final wicket fell four balls later, giving a victory to Oratory, who have now won 6, drawn 1 and lost 2.

Winchester’s sequence of nine successive wins came to an end against Eton. Eton’s towering 299 for 6 in 55 overs, led by Edward Bruce’s 101, proved too much for Winchester who nevertheless managed a healthy 268 for 9, Timothy Towler scoring 67 and Irvine Fortescue 62.

The Perse school are enjoying their best ever start to the season, having won six and drawn the other two games before half-term. Promising slow left armer Alex Fullerton has taken 16 wickets at an average of 11.19. This augurs well for their participation in the Sir Garfield Sobers tournament in Barbados in July.

With schools reporting more overs matches and afternoon games, the traditional all-day declaration game seems an endangered species. Almost extinct, alas, is the inter-school two-day game, which requires even more subtlety. Every credit, then, to the boys of Bedford and Tonbridge for giving up part of their half-term holiday to maintain this long-standing fixture in front of a large and appreciative crowd. An absorbing contest found Tonbridge dominating the first day, their captain Olly Howick’s five for 34 reducing the home team to 128. Tonbridge’s batsmen built a substantial reply of 297-7 declared, with Ed Hill and Ross McDonald putting on a brisk 52 for the eighth wicket on the second morning. The demanding deficit of 169 was superbly countered by Bedford’s Andrew Bird with 110 not out, thus saving a game which was by no means a dull draw.

Worksop have had a good run recently, culminating in a nail-biting win against this season’s all-conquering Repton; to be fair, Repton were without their two England Under-17 trialists. As the last over began, Worksop needed 3 to win with only 7 down. The first two balls produced two wickets, both bowled; the next two were dot balls, and the winning runs were secured by a mis-field. Much credit is due to both sides for positive cricket, especially from Luke Carlisle with 97 for Worksop, and Simon Duggan with six for 57 for Repton.

RGS Worcester (173) overcame Cheltenham (111) in the final of the Chesterton Cup, giving both sides four wins each in this Western competition.

Oratory have had a mixed season, but Dan Housego and Ben Howell, both 5th formers, have given them abundant runs. Howell has scored 290 runs in his last three innings. The highlights so far have been their 209 partnership against Pangbourne, and a recent win against Harrow.

Winchester have continued on their successful run with eight successive wins, the most recent against Radley.

Results (* denotes home side): *Bedford 128 (O.Howick 5-34) & 252-4 (A.Bird 110 n.o.), Tonbridge 297-9 dec., *Worksop 194-4 (T.Ullyott 6-19), Wickersley 86; King’s Grantham 205-7, *Worksop 206-3; *Repton 228-6, Worksop 229-9 (S.Duggan 6-57); King’s Bruton 155-9, *Canford 156-1; Radley 201-9, *Winchester 205-5; RGS Worcester 173, *Cheltenham 111; *Fettes 204-4 dec., Wayfarers 104.

Congratulations to Brighton College U15 Girls on winning the ECB National Indoor championship at Lord’s for the second year running. Outdoors, some dry weather brought a full round of fixtures on the first weekend of the season. One of the more remarkable innings in this early season was played by Tom Higgs at number 9 for Uppingham: looking to increase the scoring rate off the hitherto miserly Graeme White, of Stowe, Higgs found himself on strike for the second ball of the over. This he despatched over the midwicket boundary and, after strking assorted cars and trees, hit all five balls of the over for six. Despite his heroics, Stowe won by 3 wickets, led by White with 97.

It’s rare to find centuries so early in the season, but a very young (Year 11) Elliott Purdom hit a remarkable 150* for King’s Macclesfield in a handsome win over King’s Chester. Uzair Mahomed in his first game as captain of Woodhouse Grove led the way in a tense draw with Ampleforth, the latter finishing 6 short with the last pair at the wicket.

The schools’ cricket world had two shocks over the winter with the sudden deaths of Ken Suttle and Roger Hosen. Both fine sportsmen in their playing days, they later gave a huge amount of time and energy to developing the young, at Christ’s Hospital and Cheltenham respectively.
