There will be a light lunch (sandwiches and fruit) during the tournament followed by a hog-roast (with vegetarian option) from about 4pm and a big screen in the pavilion for the Six Nations Rugby. There will be a cash bar selling beer and soft drinks throughout the afternoon.

The all-inclusive price for players is:

£25 (including hog-roast and a £5 donation towards club funds)
£15 (without hog-roast but including a £5 donation towards club funds)
Concessionary price (for spectators, students & children aged 12 and over) of £10 (with hog-roast) and £5 (without hog-roast)
Free admission for children under the age of 12

Call for volunteers
Any Referees or those who would like to volunteer to help out with games should contact Alex Watson alexpwatson@googlemail.com.

We would love to see more children there this year – there will be a “5 a side” pitch ready and waiting for them so do encourage them to join you.

Players should bring their own kit (according to their team’s colours and skipper’s instructions), shin pads and boots. Changing facilities are available.

As always, parking is limited and we ask that you use the Redbridge Park and Ride at the end of Abingdon Road.

Even if you are unable to take part on the pitch, we would still love to have you there to support your friends and family, or perhaps even to referee or run the lines. We very much look forward to seeing you in March – weather permitting!

Please note that the College is not responsible for any injuries suffered and Old Members participate at their own risk.
