Old Warwickians

2012 OW Hockey (January)

As part of their charity fundraising ahead of the Paris Marathon, Old Warwickians Rob Pomfret and Tim Kindt organised a charity OW hockey match. More than £200 was raised for Médecins Sans Frontières, the medical humanitarian charity.

2012 JanuaryThe match, on 8 January 2012, pitted OWs and friends against a well-drilled Warwick Club First XI.

OWs, with McNee, Van Dijk, Devenport and Rodham breaking forward and solid defensive work from O’Sullivan, Hay and Pearson, offered a stern test to the club side, which also featured a few OW defectors, including Baxter and Best.

Despite drawing level in the second half, through a trademark Nagra drag-flick, Warwick Hockey Club ultimately prevailed 3-1, with a goal from Warwick School coach Steve Cook amongst their haul.  

The event was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends from several school years and massive thanks go to everyone involved.
