However, Harvey (27), McGregor (78no) and Peter Morgan (84no) steadied the ship for the MCC and left them in a strong position at lunch.

They sportingly declared on 229-2 off 38 overs. Gus Hagger was the pick of the school bowlers with figures of 0-27 off his eight overs.

King's started well in the run chase with Harry Cameron (76) and Will Green putting on 27 for the first wicket.

A mini collapse before tea left them 27-3 before a couple of cameos from Nikaash Dinesh (17) and Rowan Tyler (26) helped the school up to 133 all out.

Man of the match was Cameron for his superb 76 which included 15 fours. He received the Vic Heppenstall Memorial Trophy and an MCC Spirit of Cricket cap.
