Several members of England’s Under-19 squad have picked up their A-level results before the second Royal London One-Day International against Australia at Queen’s Park tomorrow; 10.30am start.

Aneurin Donald of Glamorgan, who is also the England Under 19s Captain, was one of the players who picked up his results ahead of tomorrow’s fixture at Chesterfield.

England Under-19s are also in action at The 3aaa County Ground for the third Royal London One-Day International on Monday 17 August, with the game televised LIVE on Sky Sports.

“My mum went into school down in Swansea and phoned me up this morning,” said Donald.

“I got an A, a B and a D, which I’m happy enough with. It’s not been an easy year because we had an Under-19s trip to Australia in the spring, but we all took our work with us.”

Lancashire’s Haseeb Hameed, who attended Bolton School, was also happy with a B and a C, and like Donald has decided to postpone the possibility of going to university to concentrate on his cricket career.

It is the same story for George Garton, Sussex’s left-arm seamer who had very good news from Hurstpierpoint College  with results of A, A*, B.

Ben Green, an all-rounder from Devon who is on the Somerset staff, is one of the younger members of the squad but he also had good news from Exeter School, with an A, a B and a C in his AS levels.

All four celebrated in suitable style after practice at Queen’s Park, with an ice cream from the ice cream van outside Chesterfield’s famous Frederick’s Gelateria.

Derbyshire take a trip to Durham on Monday 17 August before returning to The 3aaa County Ground for the final game of the group stages versus Worcestershire on Tuesday 18 August. Kids go FREE and Adults can save £4 on their admission by purchasing in advance.
