Paul Davidge, Head of Cricket at New Hall said “This is great recognition for all the hard work and dedication shown by our staff and students throughout the academic year.  We offer a very comprehensive cricket programme and aim to offer opportunities to cricketers of all ability levels throughout the school.”
