Congratulations have been sent to young cricketers at Taverham Hall School from one of English cricket's best-known personalities.

Jonathan 'Aggers' Agnew played three Tests for England in the mid-1980s but is better known for his extensive media work, in particular for BBC Sport's cricket coverage, including the Test Match Special radio programme.

The 55-year-old former Leicestershire fast bowler is originally from Chester but boarded at Taverham Hall School as a youngster.

He passed on his well wishes after seeing on Twitter that the school's current first XI had followed in the footsteps of the school's Colts A team in being crowned County Cup winners.

The first XI faced Thorpe St Andrew in their final, reaching 156-3 with George Harrad scoring 58, Elliot Fox 39 and Eddie Darley 25. Thorpe were then all out for 57.
