Test Match Special!

We have spent a fabulous day at Headingley today for the second day of the England Test match against Sri Lanka. The weather was perfect and we brought England good luck when they won and made Sri Lanka follow on. Joe Root, former Dore pupil, was as you can see, delighted to be photographed with a current pupil and was willing to sign shirts, bats and programmes.  As always the behaviour was impeccable and a great day was had by all including the many parents who came as well!

Thank  you to Mrs Fielding who did the hard work behind the scenes as well as Ben and Mat from Collegiate who were there to help as well as explain the more obscure rules of cricket to me! Mention, as well, to Mr France who had the idea to organise the trip in the first place but was unable to attend because of his broken leg.
