“St Stithians Boys Preparatory have a special relationship with Cornwall, as each year boys from the Cornwall Cricket Club and Saints have the opportunity to travel to each other’s country and play the wonderful game of cricket. The U13 cricket team first visited Cornwall in 1994, and in 1995 the Cornwall Cricket Club’s U13 players returned the visit and from then onwards the relationship blossomed over the years,” she explained.
