|OWs vs RGS|
A thank you to all playing yesterday and thanks also to the school for hosting the match. A special thank you to the umpire and scorer for carrying out their duties on what was probably the hottest day of the summer so far.
Members of the team were pleased to meet during the afternoon the Headmaster Mr. Wayne and Deputy Head Mr. Wallace.
Best wishes to the school for an enjoyable RGS cricket festival next week at Lancaster.
