2015 CRICKET RESULTS
Rathbones Old Victorians ran two teams in the NatWest weekend
Cricket League as well as an Evening League team.
The season was a transitional one for the 1st XI team

Alex Noel also leaves the club following his move to London, having
played a huge role over the past four seasons.
Rathbones OV Reserves had a very successful season winning the

horizon. Mention should also be made of Elliot Powell and
Matt Smith who have continued to develop the strong club and school
