Winning streak for seniors

The First XI have enjoyed considerable success this season with victories over a number of schools with strong cricketing pedigrees, while two boys also achieved senior Middlesex selection.

“Sebastian Feszczur-Hatchett and Kushal Patel both appeared for the Middlesex Second XI men’s team – a huge achievement,” said PE Teacher Richard Scally. “Kushal has also captained the Middlesex U17 team.”

The team have had a string of successes during the Summer Term, including wins against Berkhamsted School, The John Lyon School and Highgate School.

""They also beat Liverpool College by 130 runs in the semi-final of the annual Reid Trophy, with Jaimin Patel and Nikhil Patel scoring 80 and 60 runs respectively.

Mr Scally added: “We were hoping for the victory in the final that would have seen the trophy return to QE once again, but unfortunately it was not to be: Aldenham, who were the hosts, played exceptionally well on the day and were deserved winners, while we were without one or two of our better players for the final.”
