Felsted School cricketer, Jordan Cox (year 11) has achieved a feat equalling or surpassing many of the big names in first-class cricket, including Godfrey Evans, Les Ames and Alan Knott.
Playing for London and the South at Loughborough in a Best versus Best fixture selected from the Bunbury Festival for U15s earlier this summer, Jordan took eight catches in an innings!
This is a feat which has been surpassed only twice in first-class cricket and equalled only ten times, three of them in England. Jordan also plays for his local Kent team and for the Felsted 1st XI, who came second in the national finals at Arundel Castle last season.
Felsted School has a formidable reputation for cricket, led by ex-professional Cricketer, Jason Gallian. As well as the boys T20 triumph, the girls reached the national indoor cricket finals at Lord’s, and Ben Waring was named Wisden Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year.
