Sporting Festival Weekend 2017

27 Sep 2017


Over the weekend Barney welcomed over two hundred and fifty junior hockey and rugby players, and a thousand visitors, as we hosted the Seddon Cup (Under 10 girls’ hockey), Clegg Cup (Under 10 boys’ rugby) and the Tait Tens (Under 12 boys’ rugby). The weekend was a huge success, as Barney reconnected with old friends and welcomed new ones, with schools travelling from as far north as Perth and as far south as Buckinghamshire.

Our congratulations go to the winners of each tournament: Casterton for winning the Seddon Cup, St Olave’s winning the Clegg Cup, and Caldicott seeing off all-comers to win the prestigious Tait Tens. They were presented with the trophy by Alex Tait, OB and current Newcastle Falcons player.
