OWRFC Surrey Shield
The Old Whitgiftian RFC took on Cranleigh RFC in the Final of the Surrey Shield on Monday 2 May. The squad of 22 included 16 past pupils of the school, a sign of the excellent relationship that has been built between OWRFC and Whitgift rugby over the last few years.
The sunny day and dry ground favoured the OW team who put on a fantastic display of running rugby. A total of nine tries could not be matched by the Cranleigh side and the OWs finished the match as Surrey Champions, winning 53-33.
The match was the culmination of a season the OWRFC can be proud of with all 3 senior sides competing well in their leagues, the 1stXV finishing 3rd in Surrey 1. As ever, new players of all standards are welcome. Pre-season training will start at Croham Manor Road in August.
