The Cricketer have announced the top 100 cricketing senior and top 50 junior and prep schools in the country
The top 100 cricketing senior and top 50 junior and prep schools have been named in The Cricketer's annual Schools Guide.
It follows an exhaustive process which saw a record number of schools submit entries to be included in the guide. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in their curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.
The full list can be seen below.
The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes said: "The Schools Guide is, as ever, a fantastic publication that celebrates schools cricket and gives deserved praise to all those teachers and coaches who put in the hard work to develop our future club, county and international cricketers. Having watched many schools matches this summer I am pleased to report that the standard of cricket programmes and the level of passion for the game is as high as ever.
"Schools cricket has certainly benefitted from this incredible year for the sport.
"Congratulations to all of the schools included and I look forward to hearing about all of your future successes."
The bumper 124-page guide is included with the regular December issue of The Cricketer (available on the newsstand from November 22). As well as appearing in print alongside the world's No.1 cricket magazine, the guide will also be made available on The Cricketer website from Friday, December 13.
