Top 100 spot for Emirates Old Trafford base
Myerscough College, Emirates Old Trafford base, has been included in The Cricketer’s Good Schools Guide 2019.
The guide features the top 100 secondary schools and for the first time ever, a guide to the top 50 junior and preparatory schools in a bumper 116page supplement.
It follows an exhaustive process which saw more than 350 schools submit entries to be included in the guide. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, with all the chosen schools having outstanding facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
Myerscough College Cricket combines academic sporting qualifications with practical skills development, coaching and competitive fixtures, while being based at Emirates Old Trafford.
In partnership with Lancashire Cricket Club and the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, the College offers opportunity to study at level 3 (A level equivalent) for students who wish to develop a comprehensive understanding of Cricket - encompassing practical techniques, academic knowledge and technical skills.
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.
“The competition to be included was fierce and plans are already in place to provide more in-depth coverage of schools’ cricket next summer.
“Congratulations to all of the schools included and please keep up the good work.”
