Felsted School extend partnership by further three years


Essex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce Felsted School have extended their partnership with the Club for a further three years.

The Essex school will continue to sponsor the Felsted Family Stand and the Family Sunday matches as the partnership continues to flourish.

With a number of academy players such as Ben Waring, Will Buttleman, Alex Went and Annabel Hills studying at Felsted School, and Essex Women and Academies playing matches on the School grounds, the partnership is wide-ranging across all facets of Essex County Cricket Club.

Darrell Fox, Essex Cricket Commercial Manager, said: “This has been a longstanding partnership that has gone from strength to strength over the years.

“Felsted School are involved across all areas of Essex County Cricket with the pathway for future professional players proving very smooth for those wishing to achieve at a high level.

“We are looking forward to more Felsted students progressing into the first-team fold as we have seen in past years, with players such as Tim Phillips and Nick Knight.”

Jason Gallian, Director of Cricket at Felsted and former England and Essex player comments: “Cricket at Felsted is going from strength to strength and our partnership with Essex is key to that.

“In particular our growth and success in girls’ cricket has been phenomenal, with our U15 team claiming the Lady Taverners’ National Title this year, outdoing the boys, who were last year’s national 20/20 beaten finalists.

“Supported by Carla Rudd, a current SuperLeague Player, pupils at Felsted really have all the coaching, fixtures and expertise they need to support them on their cricketing journey, whatever their level.”
