A scorching President's Day at the Doggart on Sunday 30th June drew to a close the Old Stortfordian 150th Anniversary Celebrations.

Old Stortfordians, College families and staff enjoyed a relaxed day in the glorious sunshine at the annual OS President’s Family Fun Day. The soggy start to the month was a distant memory as  around 500 guests enjoyed top class cricket, a stunning classic and sports car display and younger guests enjoyed the fun of the fair in the magnificent surroundings of the Doggart.

Huge congratulations to the College team on their outstanding victory in the annual 20/20 cricket match. Both teams played the match in an amicable spirt but the College displayed an enviably high standard of cricket and they thoroughly deserved to lift the coveted Hudson Cup, named as such by the OS Society in recognition of Former Head of Modern Foreign Languages, Garry Hudson’s 40 years of Service to the College.

Thank you to all the cricketers who braved the very warm and sunny conditions to proudly represent the College and OS. Special mention to:

  • OS man of the Match: Oli Radley (NH, SuH, 05-13)
  • College Man of the Match: Adam B.
  • OS Captain: Alex Cleaves (HH, 09-13)
  • OS Team Manager: Paul Bashford (GH & MJH & SH, 77-86)
  • Head Groundsman: Nigel Witherden
  • Umpires: Mr Drury & Mr Hughes
  • Winner of the Car Owners Champagne Draw: Alex Foster (NH,CH,HH, 11-19)
  • OS President: Alastair Lukies CBE (GH, AH, 80-90)

A huge thank you to all the members of the College community that joined us and helped to make it such a memorable day.
