Congratulations to three King's College cricketers, James Rew, George Thomas, and Charlie Sharland, who have been selected to represent the South and West in the English Schools Cricket Association Under 15 Bunbury Festival Felsted School in Essex.

The Bunbury Festival brings 56 of the most talented under 15 schoolboy cricketers from England and Wales together to compete in 50-over and T20 matches and is widely known to feature the kind of talent from which England players of the future are made.

James, George, and Charlie all attended King's Hall, and were members of the team that won the ESCA Under 13 National Schools Championship in 2017. They all play county cricket for Somerset Under 15s and recently,Charlie made his debut for Somerset Second XI against Kent.

James Rew, a wicketkeeper/batsman and George Thomas, an all-rounder, both play for Taunton St Andrews in the West of England Premiership League , while Charlie Sharland, also an all-rounder, plays his club cricket for Taunton Deane who are in WEPL Premier Two (Bristol and Somerset).

Rob Woodman Head of Cricket at King’s said: “It has been fantastic to hear that James, Charlie and George have all made it to the Bunbury Festival. This is the first time that we have had three players selected and King’s is extremely proud of them. We wish them all good luck next month.

This selection has been thoroughly deserved, not only because all three are extremely talented cricketers, but they all have a willingness to train and take their games to the next level.”

He added: “All three this year have improved and developed their games hugely and it has come as no surprise that they have received the exposure they have worked hard for.”
