Hosting 2020 ECB David English Bunbury Festival

The College is delighted to announce that it has won the right to host one of the most famous events in the British cricketing calendar. The 34th edition of the renowned England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) David English Bunbury Festival, will play out under the blue skies of the sunshine coast between 2 and 7 August.

The announcement was made public today by Cricket World Magazine, The Cricketer, and the ECB who released this press statement to their hundreds of thousands of followers nationwide.

Former Kent and Nottinghamshire professional and Director of Cricket at the College, Rob Ferley, stated,

In 2018, the Bunbury Festival was rebranded after formalisation of its position on the ECB Player Pathway. The Festival’s pedigree boasts over 80 Bunbury ‘graduates’ who have gone on to win international caps, and hundreds more playing county cricket.

Last year, College cricketer Danial Ibrahim was selected for the Bunbury XI against the West Indies; the same year that witnessed record-breaking talent in the form of Tawanda Muyeye.
