The Perse School staff cricket team made up of teaching, catering, and caretaking staff at the Upper and Prep have retained the Cup for a second year in the University of Cambridge Inter-Department Cricket League.
Facing the Engineering department in the Cup Final, The Perse team went on to score a mammoth 179 for 2 in their 20 overs, which couldn’t be matched by Engineering who ended on 142 for 7, despite giving a spirited performance.
The mainstay of The Perse’s innings was Jason Coleman who finished undefeated on 104. He was also awarded man of the match for the second year in a row after his impressive century set up the victory for The Perse.
