Jack Hinchliffe, a second year cricket academy player, was invited to Lords, the home of Cricket, on Sunday 10th July, to watch England play South Africa in a Test Match. Jack was invited to this Test Match in recognition of his outstanding performance against an MCC XI earlier in the year, taking 5 wickets from the MCC XI.

Jack joined other elite young cricketers from top cricketing schools and colleges around the country at Lords, and saw his name up in lights, alongside theirs, on the Lords score board, highlighting his impressive achievement in the MCC game.

Pete Lombard, the College’s cricket coach, commented “I am so chuffed for Jack. It is a great honour to be invited to Lords by the MCC, and it is a well deserved honour for a really promising young cricketer.”
