KES team set to face MCC side

Stratford Editorial 23rd Jun, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

KING Edward VI School, Stratford, will play their first fixture against the prestigious MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) on Sunday at Stratford Cricket Club.

The declaration game starts at 11am and is due to finish at approximately 7pm and spectators are warmly welcomed.

Richard Mahony, Director of Sport, at KES, said: “This is one of the most important fixtures in the history of the school’s 1st XI and shows the enhanced development of our cricket programme over the past few years.”

The MCC is a cricket club in London, founded in 1787. It owns and is based at Lord’s in St John’s Wood.

Since its foundation, the club has raised its own teams which are essentially occasional and have never taken part in any formal competition.

MCC sides regularly tour overseas to all cricket-playing nations and to developing ones as well and the club has an extensive fixture list every season throughout Britain, particularly with schools.
