Jonty was the fourth highest run scorer in the ICC T20 World Qualifiers and was voted into the Team of Tournament which included many full time professional cricketers. He scored a remarkable 133* against the MCC whilst representing Hurst and has been asked to be part of the Tom Maynard Academy where one player from each County Cricket Academy is chosen for their potential as a future star.

Sussex Cricketer George Garton has been selected for the ICC U19 World Cup squad in Bangladesh after performing well for both Hurst College and Sussex County Cricket Club.

George arrived at Hurst aged 9 and studied there all the way through to the Sixth Form. Despite being injured for a large proportion of last season, George’s class meant he was selected for the Potential England Pace Bowling Performance Programme before being selected to represent his country in the biggest tournament at U19 level.

George plays with England to kick off the tournament on Wednesday 27th January against Fiji.
