Craig and Jamie go back to school

Craig and Jamie Overton went back to their old school recently.

The twins, who have both been called up for England Lions duty this winter, paid a visit to West Buckland Preparatory School in order to make a special appearance.

The pair presented young cricketers with their league and district cricket awards and also took part in a question and answer session before heading outside to the playground to put the Under 11s through their paces.

After the event Craig said: “It was nice to go back to the old school and see what’s changed. It was a bit strange going back and it’s changed quite a bit since we were last there. Some of the same teachers are still there though and it was nice to see them.

“It’s good to be able to give something back because they helped us so much when we were younger. They allowed us the opportunity to play cricket and their support was massive.

“I think some of the kids were a bit shocked to see us but it was great to see how enthusiastic they were about cricket and how much they enjoyed it too.”

Deputy Headmistress, Jan Witheridge said: “The twins are great supporters of the school and are always willing to give something back to grass roots cricket in North Devon.”
