STUDENTS at a South Lakeland school were bowled over with a visit from former England cricket captain Alec Stewart.

One of the most capped English cricketers of all time, Stewart visited Kendal’s Queen Katherine School to work with 23 of its students and 42 visiting pupils from local primary schools.

PE teacher Gavin Hamilton said: “It was great to see young people from different schools enjoying playing cricket together and being inspired by one of the greats of the game.

“I really hope this will motivate the young people to continue to strive to take part and do their very best in whatever they choose to do”.

Head teacher Gareth Roscoe said: “It was great that our talented cricketers and coaches have this opportunity to meet and learn from Alec.

“Who knows, it may inspire the next England captain.”
