Mathews to play for Stanmore
“Sri Lanka Under-19 skipper Angelo Mathews who notched the highest score in the first test against England has been invited to play for Stanmore CC in the Middlesex League next year (2006)” said Glucka Wijesuriya, an old Thomian, who played and captained the Under-16 team, a diehard promoter and supporter of cricket in Sri Lanka cricket. He runs Stanmore CC and is a key figure at the Shenley Cricket Centre.

After watching the first test between Sri Lanka-England he had come this conclusion. He made overtures to Angelo after watching his heroics with the willow batting under pressure. Former Sri Lanka's little dynamo Aravinda de Silva, too played for this club.
