OWBA Cricket 2014

9 Nov 2014

21st June 2014

The OWBA cricket, tennis and shooting teams were well represented this year in their matches against the school. Obviously the guarantee of sunshine was a reason to participate perhaps, but the quality of the competition was first rate.

In spite of a cricket team made up of mainly bowlers, the old boys fought hard with Charlie Wood (00-10 C) making the majority of the runs and George Long Howell (00-10 C) being the pick of the bowlers.

It was a blisteringly hot day at the crease with many keen supporters at the pavilion. Thanks must go to all those old boys who gave up their day to compete for the OWBA team: Simon Bowen 97-03 F, Nick Bowen 92-00 F, George Long Howell 00-10 F, Charlie Wood 00-10 C, Fred Kingdon 07-12 C, Harry Booker 05-12 F, Paddy Treweeke 99-13 G, Ed Reader 05-12 G, Paul Pigden 65-70 F, Bernie Wilson 60-66 B
