Winners take it all
Alton College Won the Altham trophy at the Rose Bowl against Peter Symonds. The students played really well and chased down 184 set by Symonds only losing 3 wickets. We have been in the final for the last 4 occasions and this is now the second time we have won it.
Alton College won the 'Smash and Dash' 10/10 Cricket trophy too. The College hosted it at Jubilee playing fields with Tauntons, Portsmouth and Havant College coming to take part. Alton College remain unbeaten this year winning every single game that they have taken part in, having played 8 games and won all 8. Most of the players are first years so again it looks as though we could have another strong team next year.
With the success of the Alton College Student team the 'staff' team are also unbeaten this season. We played in a friendly fixture against Peter Symonds and again managed to win.
Finally, our former student and Alton College Cricketer, 'Chris Wood' is now playing regularly for the Hampshire 1st 11 and plays in the England under 19s. It might not be to long until he breaks into the current England squad.
