The world’s premier cricketing magazine, The Cricketer, has included Elizabeth College in its Top 100 Schools for Cricket in the UK for 2019.
Following an exhaustive process where schools were judged against an extensive set of criteria, all the chosen schools have outstanding facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
Tom Eisenhuth, Head of Sport at Elizabeth College said:
“Sport and in particular Cricket runs through the fabric of our school. This is represented in the schools continued success, where we consistently compete against much larger schools; this is testament to the exceptional attitudes of the boys and on-going provision provided by the school and coaching staff.”
Jenny Palmer, Principal at Elizabeth College said:
“It makes me extremely proud to see the hard work of both staff and boys recognised in such a prestigious list, alongside other excellent sporting schools. It is not just cricket, the breadth and depth of sport at College ensures every student has the opportunity to play and compete. Hockey, football, golf, fencing, squash and the many other sports available at College are just as valued – there is always an opportunity to be active and get involved in sport at Elizabeth College.”
The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes commented:
“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. Congratulations to all of the schools included and please keep up the good work.”
Elizabeth College Cricket would like to thank its sponsors 2mi Financial Services Limited, The Little Green Energy Company and Deloitte for their support this year and we look forward to playing our fellow great cricketing schools in Guernsey and elsewhere in 2019.
