South­ern champs Dr Chal­loner’s lose out in na­tion­als

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Jamie Bris­tow, who left the school 2012, was mak­ing what will prob­a­bly be his last out­ing in the fix­ture as vice­cap­tain of the Cam­bridge team, while Mark Lil­ley, hav­ing left in 2014, was mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance for the Ox­ford side. In a tight game, Bris­tow scored Cam­bridge’s first goal, and Lil­ley was in­volved in set­ting up Ox­ford’s in what ended up as a 2-1 win for the Light Blues.

Head teacher Dr Mark Fen­ton said: “Re­mark­ably, this is not the first time that two of our old boys have ap­peared on op­po­site sides of the same Var­sity match. It is a trib­ute to the great stan­dard of hockey in the school which has de­vel­oped un­der first XI coach Richard Am­brose. Mark and Jamie are both ter­rific am­bas­sadors for the school, and I wish them ev­ery suc­cess in the fu­ture.”
