Torquay Old Boy Hits Century On MCC Debut!

Torquay CC are pleased to note their former batsman, James Toms, made a very successful start on his pathway to becoming a Playing Member of the MCC. 

On his debut, James scored an undefeated 105 against Mount Kelly (still known by many as Kelly College).   

Whilst Mount Kelly is more famous for swimming, in recent years there has been a big push to develop cricket, initially by Mark Semmence the Head Master before he moved to Repton School.  The surname sound familiar?  Well, he is the son of our former pro, Derek Semmence, who passed away last year.  Cricket is now headed up by James Carr, a member of the Carr Dynasty from Plympton CC.   

With the continuing disruption caused by Covid19 and exams.  Mount Kelly called for reinforcements – 2 old boys from last year’s 1st XI which from all accounts would have been stronger but which sadly never got to hear “Play” called. 

MCC as with tradition batted first and posted 269 for 6.  Mount Kelly in reply were spun out for just 141. 

From all accounts it was rather warmer scoring at Mount Kelly then it was at Bovey Tracey.
