First Class Cricketers in Recent Years

King's has produced numerous professional cricketers in recent years, many of whom have gone on to play for various major county sides that we have strong links with, as well as at international level. However, it is not just at the top end of the school that we are producing top players. Throughout the school there are numerous other county players representing their age groups, all of whom are hoping to follow in the same footsteps as Jos Buttler and the rest of our recent professional cricketers.
