Cricket is perhaps the oldest and most quintessentially ‘English’ sporting experience that Lucton offers. The school is proud to boast teams and success in this sport in both the local and regional area.
For those wishing to play cricket, Lucton provides coaching and performance opportunities for boys and girls. Teams are formed at U9 and exist throughout the school to U18s. All teams play regular fixtures in the Summer Term. The most eagerly anticipated game for the Seniors is the OLA Match against former pupils that takes place on the day of the Founders Day Lunch known as the ‘Pierrepont Lunch’.
Lucton has a cricket school that is run by Former England Test Cricketer Bill Athey. The pupils have winter coaching once a week through Bill. He passes on a wealth of experience to the pupils and many have developed to county level as a result.
Lucton are the current Herefordshire Schools Champions in Year 7, Plate Champions in Year 9 and Year 6 County runners-up.
The U11s have been Midlands ISA Champions at U11 in the 2017 and were runners-up in 2018.
