ORs & School Commemoration Day Cricket

On Commemoration Day this year we played the Glynn Davies Memorial Game for the final time. The game was played between a mixed Roffensian XI of current pupils and younger ORs, and the Glynn Davies XI, made up of those who had played with Glynn both at School and for the Old Roffensians.

It was moving to see so many old faces, both staff and past pupils, back together again on the Paddock to celebrate Glynn. The match was keenly contested and the current pupils, Freddie, Jamie, Alfie, Charlie and Yashvir all played well; unfortunately their younger Old Roffensian teammates required more batting practice! 

In the end, The Glynn Davies XI won by 39 runs, with Margaret Davies (AM) and Kerry Davies (OR), Glynn’s mother and sister, both present to award the trophy.
