OWGS win the Alba Trophy

The OWGS team of Tom Hawkings and Nick Holt were victorious at the Alba Trophy on Saturday 8th June.

Winchester finally get through Grafton Morrish qualifying…

The last time that Winchester qualified for the Grafton Morrish was 2013; yesterday that wrong was put right. For those interested (and bad luck to those who are not), the Morrish requires teams to progress through a process of regional qualifiers. 100 attempt to get into the 48 team finals in October. Winchester WERE perennial finalists – and even lost in the final in 2005 to Malvern. However, 5 years […]

OWGS v Rye – 11th May

Both teams assembled for the beginning of play at 9am. Fresh and bright in the morning and some unpleasant squally showers in the afternoon. At least this was the right way around as somehow a little rain after lunch seems much less of an inconvenience.  OWGS had many regulars in the team but it also included two debutants, Chris Andrew and Charlie Rowley who, thankfully, managed to step in at […]

Report – OWGS v Huntercombe

Halford Hewitt 2019 Report

After taking up multiple column inches celebrating the success of the 2018 Hewitt, it is only right that we do report on the 2019 efforts, if only seeking to take up far less in the form of celebratory glow. This year’s effort was disappointing. One of the best teams that Winchester has fielded, and defending champions no less came up against some challenges and conditions that they were unable to […]
