Cricket captain’s county school visit

PUPILS at a county school received a visit from former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan this week.

Sixth form students at Oundle School welcomed the sports star as part of their general studies programme.

Mr Vaughan spoke about his career, from being promoted to an adult first team at 12 years old to leading England to glory in the Ashes.

Pupil James Hunt, 18, said: “Mr Vaughan fielded a range of questions from the audience and spoke of his previous visits to Oundle, when he represented a North of England and an England schoolboys team.

“He talked about his Yorkshire upbringing, the huge characters he had to deal with, and offered some vital life lessons.”

Mr Vaughan first played at Oundle in 1990 before returning two years later as England Under-17 captain.
