Shebbear College were delighted to welcome cricket legend Marcus Trescothick MBE and his team to their school this week during his charity cycle ride from Keynsham to St Austell to raise money and awareness for Children's Hospice South West.
Marcus Trescothick is an English cricketer and former international player, who stood in as Test and ODI Captain on several occasions. He plays first-class cricket for Somerset County Cricket Club, and represented England in 76 Test matches and 123 One Day Internationals.
During his charity ride stop-off Marcus delivered a cricket coaching session to some U12 and U13 cricketers. Many other cricket fans, including pupils and staff, took the opportunity to drop in for a selfie and an autograph. Following this the school provided lunch before Marcus and his team cycled on.
Shebbear College wish Marcus Trescothick the best of luck with his charity ride and would like to thank him for giving their pupils the opportunity to benefit from his professional guidance as well as raising funds for Children's Hospice South West.
