Old boys vs young hopefuls

Succession Group supported the sporting talent of the future through the sponsorship of former England cricket nationals to play a T20 match against the King’s College 1st XI (some of whom are pictured above) in Taunton, Somerset.

England stars Marcus Trescothick, Andy Caddick, Adam Hollioake and Mark Ramprakash were among the England Masters XI line-up, which won by 46 runs. Funds raised went towards the King’s Community Sports Hub, which will provide exceptional facilities for the community to use.

Succession Group provided free tickets to cricket clubs across the South West.
