Spring is here, and it is time to dust off the cricket gear and get ready for another season. LSC has been very successful in the British Universities and College Sports (BUCS) Cricket League. We are now playing in the Second Division and will be playing against established universities like the University of Kent and the University of Essex.
An interesting development this season is that we have switched our training location from the Kennington Oval to a certain place called the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) Academy, located at Lords Cricket Stadium. Yes, you read it right. We will be indeed training at the Home of Cricket itself. Our chief coach is Clive Radley MBE, former England International and one of the most recognised and well respected coaches on the circuit. Clive has been Head Coach at the MCC Academy at the Lords Cricket ground for 50 years. Under his guidance in the last 4 years, the LSC cricket team has gone from strength to strength and is in the middle of a remarkable run defeating many university teams in the BUCS league.
A selection of results from the past years:
- Kingston University by 430 runs (LSC 500/9 in 40 over declared KU 70/10 in 22 overs)
- University College London by 10 wickets (UCL 88/10 in 24.5 overs LSC 89/0 in 5.4 overs)
- University of Kent by 278 runs (LSC 337/4 in 42 overs declared Kent 59/10 22 overs)
We are confident that we will continue with our success. Watch this space in the next edition for an update on our sporting performances.
