We are incredibly proud of our cricket programme at RGS High Wycombe and our ability to offer opportunities to all boys who want to participate, whether you have recently joined in Year 7 having played little cricket before or are representing the school for the 1st XI at our annual MCC Match.

As with all state-run schools, financial constraints are challenging and, at an annual cost of £15,000 to run the cricket programme, Friends of Cricket look to fund this programme through annual subscriptions, fundraising events and sponsorship. In addition to the ongoing running costs of the cricket programme, this year we are also raising funds to purchase new indoor mats, enabling us to have all year round cricket training, and upgrading our “aging” cricket scoreboard.

If you would like to donate through a subscription, please click on the “Donate” button below. Alternatively, if you, or your business, are able to support us through sponsorship please contact us at RGSFOC@gmail.com.

Your support has contributed to RGS High Wycombe being listed in The Cricketer Top 100 Senior Schools for a second consecutive year, a huge achievement for a state school.

Many thanks to all the staff, parents, boys and supporters of cricket at RGS for their continued generosity.

Looking forward to a great summer of cricket.

Michele TaylorChair, RGS Friends of Cricket

The Duncan Moore Fund

Duncan Moore was a very talented young cricketer who represented both School and County during his time at RGS. As an attacking middle order batsman, a lively fast-medium bowler and an athletic fielder, Duncan was a cricketing all-rounder. His enthusiasm for the game was matched by his excellence on the pitch, often challenging a batsman with an ability to change his bowling from right to left arm during an over. Duncan left RGS in 1996 to study languages and it was during his overseas year, whilst living in Belgium, that wintry conditions caused a car accident in which Duncan lost his life.

It is fitting that this fund has been named after Duncan, a young man whose talent was respected by staff, peers and opponents alike and whose enjoyment and enthusiasm for the sport of cricket embodied the values and ethos running through the cricket programme at RGS today.

Donors wishing to support the Duncan Moore Fund do so with a gift of £5,000, made as a single payment or in instalments.

We would like to thank and acknowledge all donors to the Duncan Moore Fund with:

· An invitation to lunch on the day of the annual Duncan Moore Memorial Match, hosted by the Headmaster.

· An annual update from RGS Head of Cricket, Andrew Fletcher, on the Cricket Programme at RGS and the use of the donations to the Duncan Moore Fund.

· Acknowledgement on our website and in relevant RGS publications (unless preferring to remain anonymous).

1562 Society

1562 is an important year in the history of RGS High Wycombe. It is the year in which Queen Elizabeth I granted the School a Royal Charter. Five centuries later, much of RGS has altered beyond recognition. But what remains unchanged is the School’s distinctive ethos, grounded in the enduring values reflected in its Elizabethan foundation. RGS High Wycombe remains committed to building on its rich heritage, and, in so doing, to further develop its reputation as one of the finest state selective schools in the UK.

The 1562 Society was established to thank and recognise individuals within the RGS High Wycombe community who share this dedication and commitment to the School. Individuals are recognised for demonstrating significant support for RGS through the giving of their time, resources or expertise.

For our financial supporters this means donating £15,620 to our cricket fundraising programme. Membership of the 1562 Society is limited to 100 individuals per year.
