Welcome to our second “The Week that Was”, our weekly update on performances, achievements and general Academy news.

Following up on last weeks post, after gaining selection to the RBPS U/11A team after representing the U/10C team last year, Matt Short took a wicket with his first delivery for the U/11A’s. Well done Matt!!

Following on that thread, two of our Grade 6 players have been selected to play an age group up for their respective schools. Ethan McGregor (RBPS First XI) and James Flint (WPPS First XI). Ethan is coached by Senior Academy Coach Kyle Schreuder and James is coached by Senior Coach Stephen George.
