Millfield do the double! Congratulations to this year’s double winners of the RNCF cricket and rounders tournament – Millfield Prep School.

44 cricket and 25 rounders teams entered the 2017 tournament, with finals day taking place on Wednesday 23 June at St Edward’s School, Oxford. Both the finals were hard fought and very close. Millfield’s First XI Cricketers beat last year’s winners Caldicott by 2 runs in a repeat of the 2016 final. The rounders final was also very close with Millfield’s girls beating last year’s winners, Bedford Girls, by half a point.

 

The annual competition, sponsored by Quilter Cheviot, sees hundreds of under-13s from across England compete to be champion of cricket and rounders. Not only is the competition a must in the sporting calendar of prep schools across England but the RNCF Cup also raises vital funds for the work of the charity. This year more than £7,000 has been raised.
