There was a very good dinner as usual in the Lodgings hosted by Ralph and Cathy Townsend and attended by 3 dons plus 5 boys and the OWs before some drinking and chatting in the Drawing Room with Rob Moore staying on. We had a Service of Recollection in Chapel which was a pleasant way to start the Sunday morning
I had serious problems raising a side but I suspect that this year’s success will assist in future and it would be good if the Captain could play next year. The young balance of the side was much commented on and went well.
Alex, Sergej and Will are great finds and need good nurturing to feed into a promising OW line-up in future.
