Epsom has been named as one of the UK’s best cricketing schools by The Cricketer Magazine based on the quality of facilities, commitment to cricket in the curriculum, and the breadth of the fixture programme.
At the end of a long selection process, which saw more than 350 academic institutions submit applications, the top 100 secondary schools have been named.
Director of Cricket, Damian Shirazi, said: “It is an excellent achievement to be recognised in this prestigious list. It provides confirmation of the incredibly high standard of facilities, coaching provision, and performances found at the College. Our pupils, staff, and ground staff should all be very proud.”
The magazine’s Editor, Simon Hughes, said: “This is a superb publication that serves both as an informative guide and as a tribute to all those teachers and coaches out there who are nurturing the talents of future club, county and international cricketers.
“I have been lucky enough to visit a number of school matches this summer, and am pleased to note that the standard of cricket, coaching facilities and enthusiasm for the game has been as high as I can recall.
“The competition to be included was fierce and plans are already in place to provide more in-depth coverage of schools’ cricket next summer.”
