Thank you to the Old Elizabethan Association, Healthspan, Livingstone Trust and East Harbour Associates for sponsoring the Elizabeth College 1st XI hockey team when they travel to London to play in the Varsity festival of hockey culminating in the Men’s Blues match on Sunday 4th March.
Elizabeth College has been invited to play in the schools matches as Old Elizabethan Andrew Oxburgh (10217), is this season’s Oxford University Men’s Blues Captain. As part of the day the captain of Oxford’s old school plays the captain of Cambridge’s old school. As Andrew left College to join Repton School on a hockey scholarship for his sixth form, he might well have chosen that school to play in the festival.
The College team is therefore honoured to have been chosen to play by Andrew. The matches take place in north London on Sunday 4th March at Southgate Hockey Club with the College match starting at 11.30am.
