Jersey Tour May 2015 Report
Two teams of boys from Years 8 and 9 returned from a successful three day tour of the Island on May 22nd. The Mornington Hotel laid on its usual excellent breakfasts and dinners-a successful army always marches on its stomach, and suitably fed, the teams achieved some excellent results. The highlight was a 135 run win by our Year 8 team against Victoria College on their lovely ground (pictured). Saxon Campbell led the way with a marvellous undefeated century. Both teams achieved two victories and all games were completed despite the unpromising weather forecasts. The boys practised hard on the mornings before the games and on the final morning the year 8s defeated the year 9s in a 20 over game. We did manage to fit in some time on the island’s lovely beaches to complete an excellent few days.
