A QUARTET of cricketers from Blundell's School are heading to South Africa this winter after being selected for the Devon under-15 team.

Pictured from left to right are all-rounder Dan Pyle, captain of Devon all-rounder Ben Steer, batsman and Heathcoat player Will Thompson and right-handed batsman Charles Fitzroy.

The young sportsmen, who are in year 10, are looking forward to the February trip, which will include six matches and a chance to go on safari.

Chairman of Heathcoat Cricket Club John Smith will accompany the boys and said it was a great opportunity to play under different conditions and against high-calibre opposition.

The boys are part of the Blundell's under-14 team who have just secured a place in the Devon cup final.
