Harrow's Master-in-Charge of Cricket, Mark Davis, has been appointed to the coaching staff of the England Women's team in the forthcoming Ashes series against Australia.
The series takes place at home in England, with Mark joining the team mid-way through July for a test match at Taunton. He will go on to accompany them for three weeks, at T20 games in Hove, Chelmsford and Bristol, as part of a coaching team of five.
A former professional cricketer himself, Mark played for Marylebone Cricket Club, Northern Transvaal, Northerns and Sussex, before moving into coaching. He was Assistant Coach of the England Women's Cricket team from February to July 2018, during which time the team achieved a place in the T20 triangular final against Australia, and won both the 50-over series against India (pictured on the homepage) and the triangular T20 series in England against New Zealand and South Africa. Prior to that, Mark was Sussex's Head Coach (2015-17), after nine years as Club Coach with the team.
With over 220 boys playing cricket at Harrow, the School fields 18 teams to ensure that every boy plays in competitive matches against wide-ranging opposition, including schools, clubs and wandering men's teams. The First XI play in the traditional Eton v Harrow match at Lord's, one of the longest-running annual fixtures internationally. House T20 competitions take place throughout the Summer term.
