The 34th annual match between King’s School and MCC on Friday was tinged with sadness as it was the first time that Vic Heppenstall was not umpiring the fixture.

The MCC lost the toss and King’s elected to bowl first on what look liked a very good batting track.

MCC scored 238-3 wickets from 42 overs, with S. Evison (47), P. Foster (64no) and C. Tomlinson also unbeaten on 57.

The pick of the school bowlers were Ben Whinney with two wickets for 15 runs, and Joe Creasey with one wicket for 39.

King’s had about 50 overs to score the runs but struggled against a tasty seam attack which removed the top order and had school reeling at 41-4.

George Park managed to steady the ship with a bright knock of 27 before being bowled by Tomlinson. Joe Creasey made a quickfire 20 to help school reach 121 runs for the loss of all 10 wickets.

MCC won by 117 runs. Man of the match for King’s, Joe Creasey, received the new Vic Heppenstall Memorial Trophy for his good all-round performance.
