Matthew Proctor joins Lord’s Taverners 100 Club
7:30am Saturday 24th July 2010 in Junior cricket
TON-UP youngster Matthew Proctor has joined the exclusive Lord’s Taverners 100 Club.
The 12-year-old Woodleigh School pupil received a certificate to mark his unbeaten 106 in an 88-run victory over Aysgarth School.
Proctor said: “I am so pleased to be a part of the Lord’s Taverners 100 Club. It was hard work getting to 106, but I really enjoyed it.”
Michael England, headmaster of Woodleigh School, said: “We are naturally very proud of Matthew for his incredible achievement. This is only the fifth-ever century we have had at the school.”
The school, at Langton, Malton, also presented Proctor with a new bat.
Allerthorpe-based Proctor was one of four star cricketers to be awarded commemorative cricket balls at the Woodleigh Founder’s Day.
During the 2010 summer term, Proctor scored three fifties – 54 not out against Minster School, 52 not out against Pocklington School and a 70 not out against Red House School.
Alex Curtis, 13, of Foston on the Wolds, scored his first half-century against Ripon Cathedral Choir School, while Jonty Gillingham, 11, of Thixendale, hit his maiden half-century against St Olave’s.
In the under-11s section, tenyear- old Robert Bradley, of Kilham, achieved a five-wicket haul and a half-century, his first, against Aysgarth School, notching 64 not out.
