Clubs & Societies
The OS Society has a very active sporting scene.
The OS face a BSC Cricket X1 in a 20/20 match at our annual OS President’s Family Fun Day hosted at the Doggart on the last Sunday in June.
If you are interested in playing cricket for the OS during this match please get in touch with Jennifer Hanson.
OS Golf Society
The OS Golf Society is vibrant and enthusiastic and is made up of dedicated members. Annually, the OSGS enjoys a good itinerary and events are very well attended but they are always looking for enthusiastic new members.
The Old Stortfordian Golf Society Representative is John Hickling.
OS Staff Liaison Officer Simon Lipscombe (HH 90-95 & current Teacher at BSC) arranges the School vs OSGS Golf event at BSGC every August, at the end of the College summer holidays. Annually this proves to be a jovial yet hard fought fixture.
OS Ladies Hockey
The OS vs BSC Ladies Hockey match is hosted annually on the evening of the first Friday of the Autumn term and attracts a great mix of OS players and spectators. It truly is a fantastic opportunity to see two talented ladies hockey teams in action.
A wonderful spirit of determination and teamwork characterises the OS team which often includes OS ladies whose leaving dates can span from 1986 right up to present, despite only playing together for the first time as a team during the match an outstanding effort is always made by all. The College 1st X1 use the fixture as part of their preseason training schedule and the nature of the match although very good spirited sees a staunch determination by both sides to try and emerge victorious.
If you are interested in playing for the OS Ladies Hockey Team please contact Jennifer Hanson
An annual Rugby Match is played between the Old Stortfordian XV and College 1st XV and this normally takes place on the first Sunday in December.
Each year, a member of the 1st XV School Rugby team is selected to receive the Jimmy Greenhill Trophy for outstanding performance and contribution. This trophy is presented at the Annual Rugby Club Dinner and retained for a year. The Old Stortfordian Society also present the recipient of this trophy with a Jimmy Greenhill Silver Spoon which they get to keep.
Our OS Rugby Representative is Stuart Findlay
OS Swimming Club
The Club has some very keen members who participate in the annual Water Polo Tournament, which is held in October at our fantastic College pool.
Our OS Swimming representative is Mike Claridge.
