Woodleigh claim Worsley success

WOODLEIGH School bagged plate success in the Worsley Cup at St Martin's Ampleforth.

The event attracts many of the top prep schools, including Sedburgh, Aysgarth, Gresham’s and St Olaves, so it was with trepidation that Woodleigh, a small prep school based near Malton, took to the field.

After a poor start when Woodleigh lost to Sedburgh and local rivals Terrington, they rallied with impressive batting from the captain Alex Machen and superb bowling skills from Will Proctor, Oliver Medforth and Jack Garrity to beat Ampleforth in the Plate final.
