Club Day 2019

Saturday 28th September saw Club Day with slightly reduced numbers attending but none-the-less very successful.

At the AGM we said goodbye to the outgoing President Paul Orchard-Lisle (SU 1952-56) and welcomed Richard Pembroke (B1 1985-90) as the new President for 2019-20.

The day was timed to coincide with the College’s Festival of Sport so, as well as a full programme of OM sport including Mixed Hockey, Fives, Rackets, Shooting and Football, there was also plenty of College sport to enjoy.

Grainne Lenehan, College Archivist gave a fascinating lecture tracing the history of two boys at Marlborough College in the 1870s told through two photo albums donated to the College.

One OM said “I wanted to say a massive thank you to all who organised the OM Club Day last weekend. It was an extremely well organised day and a fun excuse to come back and visit the school where so many happy memories were made. We loved playing hockey … and I know the boys enjoyed playing football and fives. Breakfast in Norwood was a highlight and it was fascinating to visit Dancy House. We enjoyed catching up with lots of the teachers and the plenty of food and drinks that were endlessly provided throughout the day.”
