who returned to Papplewick for Old Boys' Day 2016. He was one of the nine boys
who started when the School opened in September 1947.
Old Boys' Day 2017.
The 2017 cricket match v the HM’s Xl on July 9th
was played on a perfect day for cricket, on a hard pitch and with the sun
shining throughout. Both teams were strong and a good game was promised. And so
it turned out. The Old Boys batted first and tackled some aggressive bowling by
determined batting from Will Western-Kaye and Jamie Roy, who scored 24 and 39
runs respectively. Another lengthy stand between Alex Avery (15) and James
Brooks (50) and several other defiant innings ensured a reasonable score of 213
for the HM’s side to face.
An early wicket encouraged
the Old Boys, with the result that they caught and bowled well throughout the
afternoon – though they met with considerable resistance along the way. Two
opposition scores in the 40s and other attacking performances proved hard to
overcome, but good bowling by Will Cowley (3 for 24) and Florian Caspers (3 for
10) kept the pressure up and the final wicket fell at 6 pm, giving the Old Boys
victory by 32 runs.
It was very good to see the
return of a sizeable number of Old Boys who left the School 10 years ago. Alex
Avery did a good job gathering so many together and all those who returned had
an enjoyable day catching up on news and visiting old haunts.
