Our U12 Pelicans which included 5 U10/U11boys had an enjoyable tour to Millfield School. Organised by the Root Academy the event combined both training and match play.

The boys had a fantastic time being coached by ex-pros as well as using the world class facilities at Millfield school which included their 5 lane facilities with each net being similar to some of the test grounds like the WACA and Lords.

Despite losing both games against some tough opponents the boys did the club proud.

The boys played against Millfield U13s  (containing 7 Somerset U13 County players) and Merchant Taylors U13s ( which included 9 Middlesex U13 County players).

Grayshott restricted both teams to 99 and then responded being all out for 60 on each occasion.

See below more photos of the boys enjoying themselves and the excellent facilities. It was fantastic to see the boys compete at this level and did themselves and the club very proud. 

Many thanks to Matt Swarbrick who organised the tour, and Pete Flanagan who supported Matt on the tour together with Emma Evans who supported the tour with all the admin arrangements.
