Immediate past Captain of Cricket, James Mitchell, received the award from The Forty Club’s Patron, HRH Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh, at the Forty Club’s Annual Dinner held in the Long Room at Lord’s a few weeks ago. Accompanying James was Christ College’s Director of Sport, Mr Tim Trumper, and the Forty Club’s Wales District Chairman, Peter Owens. Other schools from the other regions were also represented. The event was attended by over 200 guests and they were entertained by amusing and entertaining speeches from The Forty Club’s Carl Openshaw and President of the MCC, Mike Gatting.
The Forty Club is reputed to be the largest wandering cricket Club in the world. As a wandering or nomadic Club it does not own its own ground. The aim of the Club since 1936 has been ‘to take cricket to the schools’ by offering schools and Youth XIs fixtures against experienced cricketers who will encourage the young cricketers to play the game to the highest standards of performance and behaviour and in the best spirit of the game. The Forty Club currently plays some 130 fixtures a season against School and Youth sides throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
