RUGBY UNION

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

TWO Che­sham Prep School old boys have been mak­ing a name for them­selves with the U18s academy at rugby gi­ants Sara­cens.

Tom Fitch and Ted Stan­ford (pic­tured) have been train­ing twice a week through­out the sum­mer along­side the first team and were both se­lected to rep­re­sent their club in the RFU U18 Academy Fes­ti­val in Bris­tol.

Sara­cens won all three games, against Glouces­ter, Bris­tol and Ex­eter, and both Che­sham lads scored points, with Fitch kick­ing flaw­lessly and Stan­ford scor­ing a try against Ex­eter.

Fitch, now at Berkham­sted School, plays his club rugby at Amer­sham & Chiltern, while Stan­ford, who is at St Columba’s Col­lege, also plays for Sara­cens Am­a­teurs.

Head teacher Mike Davies said: “It seems only a short time since they both played to­gether in the U10s at Che­sham Prep School and Ted was our head boy.”
