Canford Cricket Double Centuries in County Cup



In the first round of the U14 Dorset Cup, Canford School’s Tom Prest and Freddie Peters (pictured) set a school record stand of 287 for the second wicket against Bryanston. Excellent shot execution and superb running between the wickets saw Canford reach 298-2 from their 30 overs. Freddie fell on 111, but Tom finished on 157no, as well as taking five wickets when bowling, and a catch! Canford won by 150 runs to progress to the second round.

It has been an excellent start to the Canford cricket season also in regular block fixtures, with the 1st XI, 2nd XI, 3rd XI and 4th XI unbeaten - recording wins so far against Winchester College, Clayesmore, Portsmouth Grammar, Milton Abbey and Millfield.
