20th November 2020 — Wisbech Grammar School would like to congratulate George Gowler (from March in Cambridgeshire) on being selected to the Northants County Cricket Club Academy.
WGS Head of Cricket, Neil Taylor said “George joined the school in Year 7, following his brother William who also represented Cambridgeshire CCC and the School at Senior level. George has worked extremely hard and it is always exciting to see a fast bowler develop his skills. In 2018, WGS formed a schools partnership programme with Northants CCC, with the aim of providing our exceptionally talented players with a pathway into professional cricket.”
Northants Cricket Academy Head Coach, Kevin Innes said “George has progressed from our Emerging Players Programme to be the first pupil from Wisbech Grammar School to be offered a place on the Academy. We are delighted to have George on board and we look forward to working closely with both George and Wisbech Grammar School to give him every chance to fulfil his potential.”
George will attend regular coaching sessions at Northants CCC. He will be a prominent member of the WGS 1st XI and when not representing the School he will continue to play for Wisbech CC.
