Junior Alleynian 2023

CRICKET n Junior School Cricket continues to go from strength to strength as the fixture list and number of boys playing cricket has grown since 2015. This season, every boy in the Junior School has had the opportunity to play in at least three inter-school fixtures this term with no shortage of highlights. The Year 3s first Dulwich College cricket season impressed with many close fixtures including two ties for the B squad, it’s exciting to see their development as a year group in the future. Whilst the Year 4s had great results in block fixtures against Dulwich Prep London and Hornsby House School, Matteo S starred against St Paul’s Juniors by taking five wickets for just fifteen runs, including a hattrick. The Under 10A squad played a friendly against Dulwich Cricket Club where Raif NL scored an excellent 42. As a year group, they had positive block fixtures against Hill House International Junior School and Donhead Preparatory School. The Year 6 squads also had an excellent season. In the U11 ‘B’ team, Charlie F’s pivotal hattrick against Dulwich Prep London was a moment to remember. The A squad were a particular highlight with comprehensive wins against Dulwich Prep London twice, St Paul’s Juniors and Donhead Preparatory School. Also, at the St Paul’s Junior 6-a-side tournament, the Under 11A team performed impressively and beat KCS in the final to be overall winners. Individual honours this season include Sam C and Josh J playing for Surrey whilst Harry B has been selected to play for Kent against Middlesex.

ATHLETICS n During the Junior School Athletics season, each and every boy takes part in the English Schools Athletics Award Scheme, allowing them to develop their confidence and competence in running, jumping and throwing events. The boys are able to broaden their experiences and take part in a range of track and field events, which develop and progress as the move

through the Junior School, meaning that their accomplishments are tracked year after year. Along with some outstanding individual achievements, the fact that every student was able to compete against themselves and their peers whilst preparing for Junior School Sports Day, made the Athletics season a huge success.
