Just over 5 weeks to go to the over-60’s lunch at the Oriental Club. We are still a bit short of the ‘Young Over-Sixties’, so why not sign up for what will be a convivial meal in superb surroundings? This does not exclude you if you are an older over-sixty, and have still to get around to contacting me, Rodney Battey, at email@example.com and I can give you the details.

The School are being entertained by the Sussex Martlets at Arundel Castle for their annual fixture this year. The game starts at 11.30am on Tuesday 27th June. The Martlets are being managed by Jamie Hutchings and the team will include a number of OJs. All are most welcome to come and enjoy the day on one of England’s most beautiful grounds.
Thankfully the College weren’t at full strength! A bad toss to lose saw us in the field, 40 overs later and the College had set us a daunting 315 to win. Unfortunately we were 193 runs short in our reply. Still a great day in glorious sunshine. Many thanks to all for playing.
