Christ’s Hospital’s 1st XI captain Will Freeman will not forget this season’s 1st XI match against the MCC in a hurry. Will scored a superb 103 to set up a 7 wicket victory against the famous Marylebone Cricket Club.
Director of Sport Dave Messenger said: “Without doubt one of the highlights of the 1st XI cricket season is the match against the MCC and this year it was good to see the team produce an excellent all round performance. Each year the MCC team consists of high quality club players and sometimes ex-1st class cricketers. On this occasion Jack Mynott (Hampshire 2nd XI and Wiltshire CCC), who had been coaching at CH this season was playing for the MCC, along with his father Tim Mynott who had represented England in the Ashes 60+ series last winter in Australia. An MCC player who travelled from overseas for the match was former pupil and MCC captain George Hobden.”
Before the match, which took place during the last week of term, Master in Charge of cricket Howard Holdsworth presented 1st XI colours to Gus Freeman, Eric Swinn-Ward and Sam Winsbury.
For taking over 6 wickets against the MCC, captain Will Freeman will be invited to an all expenses day at a Lord’s Test Match and receives an award to mark this tremendous achievement.Back to latest news
