After 18 months of planning and fundraising 12 pupils from Year’s 8 to 11 accompanied by Dr. Butler, Head of Physical Education and Games Faculty, and  Mr Vyse, Deputy Head will embark on a cricket tour like no other to SOUTH AFRICA!

The group have been training endlessly in preparation for the hard pitches of South Africa where they will play six matches against local sides.

Dr Butler said, “ We’ve got some real talent in the group and have a couple of boys who can bowl with pace with some good spin options. We are confident our batsmen will adapt to playing in very different conditions. It should be great.”

QEGS would like to offer special thanks to Grays of Blackburn and QEGS Old Boys Association (OBA) for funding the tour kits, hoodies and hats. Your generosity is very much appreciated.
