Droitwich students' guard of honour for England cricket team

Droitwich Editorial 10th Jul, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

DROITWICH students got to form a guard of honour to welcome England’s one day Test side onto the pitch at Edgbaston.

And, there was more joy for the young people after they saw England’s batsmen post a record breaking score of 408 for nine and beat the Kiwis by 210 runs.

In total, 20 year eight and ten students from Droitwich Spa High School attended the day as part of a trip organised by the humanities department and were invited to form the guard by staff at the Birmingham ground.

Oliver Gray, head of geography, said it was a great day and wonderful for the students.

“Not only did they get to see the highest one day total ever posted in the 50 over format but they also got to formally welcome the team on to the pitch,” he added.

“They really enjoyed it and we’re very proud, as were the staff of the way the students conducted themselves.”
