JUNIORS FORM GUARD OF HONOUR FOR KENT CCC

To celebrate the Club’s new formal partnership with current and recent pupils invited to form the Guard of Honour at Kent’s T20 game against Somerset on July 10. Most were already Club members but a number are new to cricket and were chosen by the school as a reward for their contribution to school life.

A great time was had by all as you can see in the pictures. They were also able to meet the players after the game which has resulted in an invitation for Kent’s Matt Coles to participate in a school assembly and coaching session in the Spring.

Staplehurst School Head, Cathy Farthing, said: "I am delighted the school was represented in this exciting event. It was an opportunity to highlight the contribution schools like Staplehurst make to nurturing and developing a lifelong commitment to sport and physical activity in our young people. The partnership with Staplehurst Cricket & Tennis Club, as the village's largest sports club, helps ensure that work continues after the children leave the school."
