Brothers Callum and Matty Whitworth certainly enjoyed their weekend of Mill Hill School Cricket this week. Matty, who will be joining the school in September as a Sport Scholar guested alongside four other 2018 Sport Scholars to represent some of the MHS U14 Cricket team against St Albans. Matty hit an unbeaten 54 as he enjoyed a match winning partnership with George Woodings. His older brother Callum, led the U15A side with great maturity as captain and contributed with a fantastic knock of 73 and bowled 6 overs, 1 maiden, 1 for 28. It was a great day for the boys and who knows, they could be doing this together in the 1st XI in years to come.
