Rydal Penrhos features in The Cricketer Magazine's top 100 list

Rydal Penrhos has featured in a leading cricket magazine as one of the top sporting schools in the country.

The Cricketer has placed Rydal Penrhos in their top 100 schools in Britain after being selected from 500 applicants to feature in the issue entitled “The Playing Fields of England: An A-Z Guide to the Summer Game’s Top 100 Schools”.

It has been a hugely busy year for the department, which recently became the North Wales hub for the prestigious Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation.

The school has also invested in an outdoor nets area which is currently under construction, and high-profile visitors throughout the year include former England international Gareth Batty and cricketing icon Andrew Flintoff.

Editor Simon Hughes, said: “School cricket is not only the breeding ground for professional talent in the game, but it also lays the foundations for many youngsters to love the game for life.

“I heartily commend Rydal Penrhos’ commitment to providing such excellent opportunities for your pupils to compete in our wonderful sport.”

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, added: “It is a very exciting time for cricket at the school with the MCCF Hub, the investment in facilities and the arrival of some very talented young cricketers on sports scholarships.

“Arran Sen is already with us and has seen his game improve dramatically during our winter nets programme, and we will also be welcoming two Welsh Youth internationals next year in the form of Owen Reilly and Joshua Massey.”
