Prior appointment at home of cricket Hamish Pearson
Prior Park 1st XV vice captain Hamish Pearson visited Lord's to collect the prestigious Forty Club Award on behalf of his team.
Pearson and the college's director of sport, Steve Capon, were invited to the Long Room by the world's second-largest private cricket club after being honoured with the skills and fair play accolade.
Deputising for last year's captain, Peter Borton, who is continuing his cricketing odyssey through Namibia, Pearson took to the podium to acknowledge how proud Prior Park were to have been selected from a national field.
In a letter addressed to headmaster James Murphy-O'Connor, Forty Club honorary secretary Barry Aitken commended the College on receiving the award and also praised Pearson as a "superb ambassador" who gave a speech that was "well-articulated, sensible, mature and which hit all the right buttons."
