‘Durham School has and continues to supply top cricketers, like Gordon Muchall, who made his first-class debut in 2002, to Durham County Cricket Club. Our close association with Durham School has also seen top class cricket coaching delivered by members of the team to help progress further these talented school cricketers. Emirates Durham ICG is not just home to Durham County Cricket Club, it is also home to rising local talent here in Durham.’
