Josh Macdonald, Oliver Parton, Ben Thompson, and Jovan Uppal are part of a Shropshire U13s tour to the Cape, where they will play against sides representing Western Province and Stellenbosch, as well as other schools and community teams.
In order to make the trip happen, the boys put in a huge amount of effort to raise funds, completing sponsored endurance challenges and holding quiz nights. They have also been collecting used kit to donate to good causes in South Africa. Find out more here.
We wish the boys all the best on their tour. They are sure to make some fantastic friendships and memories and, of course, gain some invaluable cricketing experience.
