There have been many outstanding performances this term from Hampton’s 21 cricket teams. The First XI secured a flurry of victories including against KCS Wimbledon, St Paul’s School, RGS Guildford, Reed’s School and Whitgift School, with four bowlers Harry Gregory, William Knowles, Louis Simonds-Gooding and Nat Taylor earning their places on the honours board. Our seniors’ final game was one for the history books with Hamptons’ Firsts clinching victory by one run. Many of our younger players have also showed great promise, boding well for the future of Hampton Cricket. In terms of individual success, congratulations go to Naavya Sharma who received his call-up to the Middlesex Second XI this term.
It has been a season of new School and Borough records. Congratulations to Gus Carter (U6) and Kieran Bouwmeester- Reid (L6) who achieved national selection for 400m Hurdles and Shot Put, respectively. Across the younger years, there were wins for First Year Eric Rainey (Javelin), Third Years Jack Holden and Marcus Solomon (800m and 1500m), and Alessandro Cardinale (High Jump and Hurdles) at the Richmond Borough Schools’ Athletics Championships.
At the Athletics Track & Field Regional finals, Second Year Joe Timba continued to impress with wins in the 80m Hurdles and Discus. Joe set new Borough and School records in the Hurdles as did Fourth Year Sam Moylan-Jones in the 200m race.
Congratulations also go to our Senior 4x400m relay team, Freddie Bate, Gus Carter, Stanley Cumming and Aaron Mills, who broke the long-standing School record in a time of 3:37:85.
Hamptonians have enjoyed an excellent term on the water. A strong first day at Henley Royal Regatta was just one of the rowing highlights this term with the First VIII winning convincingly against Abingdon School.
A total of 45 Hampton rowers competed at the National Schools’ Regatta, with the J18 Coxed 4 taking Silver, and the J16 Second VIII and J14 First Octuple securing Bronze. Congratulations to the J16 coxed four crew, Harry Forbes, George Buckingham, Zaidan Amiji, Harry Bernard and Fabien Tinsley-Roy who race on behalf of their country in the international GB vs France match.Back to All Articles
