Bunbury Cricket Champions
Three King's Pupils Help the South West to Victory
Three pupils from King’s College, James Rew, Charlie Sharland and George Thomas have just returned home from the Bunbury Cricket Festival, where they played their parts in helping the South West to victory in both the 50 and 20 over competitions.
During the Bunbury Festival that took place at Felsted School in Essex, and features the best Under 15 cricketing talent across England, the three King’s pupils enabled the South West to remain unbeaten winning all five of the games played.
In the 50 over trophy competition the south west beat the North, the Midlands and London and South East while in the T20 they beat London and South East in the Final.
Each of the boys has played up through the county age groups and all are involved in the Somerset Pathway youth system.
Rew and Thomas play their club cricket locally for Taunton St Andrews while Sharland plays for Taunton Deane.
Phil Lewis, Director of Sport at King’s College said: “It is no surprise to see Charlie, George and James helping the South West to dominate this year’s Bunbury Festival. We have known about these three players for a long time as they all came through our prep school, King’s Hall.”
Lewis added: “They all work incredibly hard and have benefited from the excellent coaching they receive here at King’s, and at Somerset. They certainly have bright futures and we are very excited about them.”
