As was expected, the lst XI benefited from the inclusion of several young players last season, and, although everyone did not achieve as much success as they deserved, the team played well together and only three matches were lost out of a total of fourteen played.
There were some very exciting matches, in which the result was always in doubt. Notable among these was the game with Colchester R.G.S., when the School was dismissed for 64, yet succeeded in winning by six runs, dismissing our last five opponents for only one run.
The game with MiIes's XI, which is usually the attraction of the seasnon, was somewhat dampened by a heavy storm during the tea interval, and, although play was resumed after a break, a result became impossible. This year the School was represented in the Essex London Boys teams by Gymer, and in Young Amateurs of Essex by Thorne and Kelham.
