OH Rugby Presidents Lunch

Hymers V Pocklington 1st 1V
8 Nov 2021
Written by Emily Pennack (Wilkinson)
United Kingdom

On Saturday 6th November we held an inaugural President OH Rugby Lunch at the school,  we welcomed back over 40 of our alumni to join us for a two-course lunch in the old gym before joining the sideline to support our current 1st 1V play Pocklington.

We enjoyed hosting Pocklington's Headmaster and Development staff prior to the match. Justin, our Headmaster, shared some words from our archives dating back to 1940 about previous matches versus Pocklington over the decades. There were some harsher team write-ups back in the day! 

It was great to see a range of parents, families, old Captains, past staff and our current Captain at the lunch. The event was a success and we plan to keep a rugby lunch event in our alumni events calendar.  Thank you to everyone that attended and supported the day - and yes, we won!
