Denstone College staff and pupils were delighted to have met England Cricket Captain, Joe Root on Saturday 12 October. Joe surprised the school with his request to make use of the fantastic indoor cricket facilities at Denstone following a discussion with close friend and Director of Cricket, Mr Simon Guy. Joe gave up some of his valuable time in-between hitting balls to do a Q&A with the pupils. He spoke about his cricketing career with Yorkshire and England as well as the challenges he faced when he was at school and how he managed to overcome them. This was an incredibly wonderful and inspiring discussion for the pupils involved. Joe will be heading out to New Zealand on November 1 where England will take on New Zealand. We wish Joe and the team all the best!
