The King's School in Macclesfield


      Boys' Cricket

      Cricket is the major summer sport in the Boys’ Division. The school has up to 9 teams playing regularly every Saturday from U12 B up to 1st XI. The fixture list is demanding and tests the boys against the best schools in the North West. King’s teams regularly reach County Cup finals and many pupils achieve County and District representative honours. In 2016, 2017 and 2018 King’s was named one of the Top 100 cricketing schools in the country based on the history, results and facilities at the school.

      A team of dedicated games staff supported by expert coaches work hard with all the pupils during games lessons and after school. In 2018 the school appointed former Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire seamer and Level IV Coach, AJ Harris, to head up the coaching programme.

      The 1st XI cricket field is in a glorious setting in front of the main school with further pitches at the school’s Derby Fields site and a brand new all–weather practice facility on hand for all the players.

      In 2018 the senior sides reached the NW Final in both the U17 and U18 T20 cup competitions, narrowly missing out to eventual national finalists Sedbergh on both occasions. At the end of season school cricket festival the 1st XI went unbeaten for the 3rd successive year.

      The school regularly organises overseas tours having visited South Africa, Barbados, Grenada, Kenya and Sri Lanka. The most recent trip saw the school U18 and U16 teams travel to Dubai in 2018 for a hugely successful trip.

      The school’s most famous cricketing Old Boy is Peter Moores who has coached England on two separate occasions and is the brother of the current Head of Cricket Stephen Moores. Another former captain, Jonny Marsden, captained Oxford University to a unique treble in 2016, with Oxford winning the three-day, one-day and T20 varsity matches. Old boy Alex Thomson signed a professional contract with Warwickshire for 2018.
