Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Lost In 1974... Found In Revamped Building -

A stu­dent from Ken­ning­ton cap­tained his col­lege to vic­tory on a tele­vi­sion quiz show this week.

Ralph Mor­ley, 21, led the win­ning Trin­ity Col­lege, Cam­bridge team on Univer­sity Chal­lenge, which aired on Mon­day night.

Mr Mor­ley is the son of Ken­ning­ton Com­mu­nity Fo­rum chair Chris Mor­ley, and at­tended St Theresa’s Pri­mary School in Ash­ford be­fore mov­ing to a board­ing school out­side the county.

The Cam­bridge team picked up a quar­ter fi­nal vic­tory, beat­ing ri­vals Manch­ester Univer­sity by 285 points to 205.

Dur­ing the spir­ited match, Mr Mor­ley prompted teas­ing by host Jeremy Pax­man when he pre­empted the end­ing of a ques­tion on Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ters.

Al­though an­swer­ing cor­rectly, Pax­man play­fully branded Mr Mor­ley and his team “smar­tarses.”
