It was great to see Harry Gurney (OL 2000 – 2005) back at LGS again to pass on some words of wisdom to the lads in the Under 13 Cricket Squad. We were very lucky for him to be able make time to come and see us as he was off to Durham immedieately he left us for a Twenty20 Blast match. He spent well over an hour with the lads and they were clearly delighted to be able to talk to him and to learn just what bowling, in particular, is all about.
As always Harry was only too keen to chat with everyone and some Fairfield boys, who were playing on the 1stXI Field, were especially delighted when he began signing autographs on anything they had to hand: books of course, bats, pads and, somewhat strangely, the lenses of a pair of sunglasses!
We are obviously delighted to see the huge impact he is having playing for England in limited overs matches and wish Harry all the best: what price a Test call-up?
