Congratulations to Dauntsey's School pupil Jack Mynott, who's been named the Cricket Society's Leading Schools All-Rounder 2011!
Jack, pictured above, has played for Dauntsey's 1st XI since the age of 14, and the School believe that Jack was the youngest player to score a 1st XI century for Dauntsey's back in June 2009. Last season, he scored 1090 runs at an average of 64.12 per innings, with 5 centuries and a top score of 145. He also took 38 wickets at an average of 14.42 and an economy rate of 3.36 per over - great stats! His best bowling performance was 4 wickets for 8 runs.
The Award - consisting of an individual plaque and a cheque - will be presented to Jack at the Cricket Society's Spring Dinner to be held at the Royal Over-Seas League in St James's, London on Friday 13th April 2012. Jack's name will also be inscribed on the Wetherell Trophy which resides in the Lord's Museum.
It's a fantastic achievement and testament to Jack's abilities - he's in very good company with England players such as Chris Cowdrey, Derek Pringle and Richard Ellison all previous recipients of this prestigious award, along with Dauntsey's newly appointed Cricket Coach, on Ayling who also won the award in 1985 whilst he was a pupil at Portsmouth Grammar School.
Congratulations to Jack and all his teammates and coaches at Dauntsey's who have helped him along the way!
