The Hobbs Trophy match has been played annually between teams of U15 boys from State schools in Surrey and South London for almost 50 years.  Weather permitting this historic match is played at the Kia Oval.  This is an exciting opportunity to showcase the standard of State school cricket in Surrey.

For 2019, the Hobbs Trophy match is scheduled for the Kia Oval on Wednesday, 03 July.  It is a 40-over match starting at 11:00 a.m.  We are now looking for Year 10, or outstanding Year 09, boys to play in this match.  Some nominations have already been received.

If you think there are players at your school or club whose attitude and skills deserve to be showcased on a Test Match ground, please contact me.  A nomination form for the Hobbs Trophy match is available below.

Net sessions will be arranged either during the Easter School Holidays, or at the start of the Summer Term, depending on the number of nominees.  In case of holiday sessions, it is essential that I have direct home contact details for each nominee.
