Boys' School Secure Klippel Shield!

March 19, 2015 at 1:02 PM

Since 1974 the ‘Klippel Shield for Preparatory School Cricket’ has been contested between three strong cricket playing schools – Saint Kentigern, King’s School and Southwell School - with the Boys’ School taking stewardship of the Shield on many occasions.

We are pleased to report that the 2015 Saint Kentigern 1st XI has ensured that the Shield was returned to, and then retained in, the Saint Kentigern trophy cabinet this year after three emphatic wins, firstly beating King’s by 87 runs early in the season, followed later by another sound win against Southwell. In the most recent and final Klippel Shield match of the season, our boys once again trounced King’s, winning by nine wickets, possibly the biggest winning margin in the history of these matches.

Along with the Senior School teams, the Middle School cricketers have been equally successful showing the depth of talent.

While there have been fantastic individual performances, it was the efforts from all team members working cohesively that produced the result - total commitment, energy and skill won each match! Well done boys!
