Week commencing 18 April 2016

In a superb week of cricket, our Upper School teams won 11 matches out of 15. 

The 1st and 2nd XIs kicked the week off in style with victories over The Perse: winning by 24 runs and 131 runs respectively. 

On Wednesday, the 1st XI defeated a strong Stowe side by 29 runs to take the first round of this year’s HMC National T20 competition.

Thursday saw a fixture against Harrow School for our 3rd and 4th XI and our U16 B and B teams.  In a well-contested afternoon of cricket, Harrow proved unassailable and went way with all four wins.

On Saturday, spectators were treated to a superb afternoon of cricket.  Despite the chilly conditions, every Bedford team secured victory in the fixture against Felsted to give them eight wins out of eight. A wonderful finish to the week.
