At last a day uninterrupted by rain! Indeed, the sun shone on us all as the returning Sternians once again defended the T20 trophy against the current school XI. Despite some testing school bowling (it was good to see new 4th form recruit, Sam Gilley, take a couple of wickets), George Breddy and Andrew House opened with a stand of 113 thus establishing a foundation for the Sternians to post an imposing 190. To score at over 7 an over was more than creditable for the college but their 142 eventually left them 48 adrift.
The previous captains on parade on Sunday were Hugo Hammond, Alex Hammond, John Hodgson, Robbie Heywood and Andrew House. Robbie had played at Lord’s for Oxford in their win over Cambridge on the previous Friday. We were also delighted to welcome back Ben Read, George Breddy, George Emery, Toby Ward, Tim Salmon and George Sandford.
