The playing fields of Lord Wandsworth College provide the ideal setting for a game of cricket, played on a perfect Summer Sunday. Set in 1200 acres of farmland, the college was established when former Liberal MP, Baron Sydney Stern, bequeathed money to be used in the education of local agricultural worker’s children. LWC, with it’s fine sporting tradition and long association with girls cricket, was included in The Cricketer Magazine’s annual Top 100 Cricket Schools supplement and is a fitting venue for the under 15 Hampshire Ladies team. Cricket isn’t the only sport enjoyed by current and former pupils, though. Legend has it that the school’s first rugby posts were cut by the boys from the surrounding woodland, and a young Jonny Wilkinson could be seen here meticulously perfecting his goal kicking technique during his school years.
