OW Football

Despite the soggiest winter on record and the Worth Playing Fields under water, we were determined not to cancel our annual football fixture for the Henry Surtees Memorial Cup, and so on Sunday 17th March the OW 1st XI met the School XI on the Astropitch instead. It was a lively match, despite the School team having played 5 games away in 9 days, and one of our key players, Joseph Rivers F'10, damaging his achilles, but the strength of the OW team was evident from the start and culminated in a 3-2 win with the deciding goal being scored just before the last whistle. This was the first win for the alumni team since this match was first played in 2010, so a very proud moment for all, but particularly team captain, Harry Woodman F'10, who enthusiastically received the Cup from Head Master, Stuart McPherson.

We were also delighted to have Henry Surtees' sister, Edwina, joining us for the afternoon who also unveiled a new memorial to Henry in The Pitstop café here at the School during the post-match tea.

The following played in the team; Tom Bentley, Oli Goodridge, James Kemp, Tim Long, Will Mersh, Raj Patel, Joseph Rivers, Oliver Rivers, Theo Rivers, Giulio Saletti, Gilles Sinclair, Tim Starkie and Harry Woodman (C).
