Wet and windy conditions welcomed the Old Rugbeian Golfing Society and The School to Woking, but failed to dampen the spirits of both sides in what proved to be another particularly enjoyable Gerald Micklem practice round.

17 of us met in the bar at 11.30 followed by a very convivial lunch with much laughter swapping stories past and present, from a Head of School, Heads of Houses, Levee, Cadet Officers, House Prefects and aspiring officers in waiting. It was clear a hard fought match was in store, and so it proved.

Despite inevitable slow play in front from the Wykehamists, the roof of the clubhouse coming into play on the 14th, and numerous puddles to contend with, the School ran out the eventual winners winning by 4 matches to 2. The ORGS points being secured by our Secretary Tim Watts and Captain of Vice, Charles Maisey.

Our sincere thanks to Woking Golf Club for welcoming us all so warmly. The Rugby School boys and masters in charge were simply a pleasure to spend time with, and a credit to the School.

The School: Dan Hatton, Oscar Holt, George Langran, Josh Montford Bebb, Marcus Richards, Matthew Wolfe, Andy Davey (MIC), Tom Rennoldson (Asst MIC).
The ORGS: Antony Aitken, Victor Barker, Jock Fraser, Nick Hills, Charles Maisey, Peter Mason, John Newton, Tim Watts, Theo Williams.

The Gerald Micklem has increasingly become the South East showcase golf competition for all eight Schools. It attracts a huge following, including prospective and past parents, old boys and girls, past and present school masters.

Our competing Schools now offer numerous golf scholarships at both 13 and 16 years of age to boys and girls with scratch or low single figure handicaps, and the top four School sides will all now be predominantly single figure handicappers.

It is clearly apparent that the Rugby Team require hugely more support than is currently offered from the top of the School, to compete at this level going forwards.
