OBs return to School for Rugby get-together

rugby reunion
On Saturday we welcomed back Old Bradfordians to a Rugby Reunion, which we hope will become a regular feature in the OBA calendar.

Following a buffet lunch and drinks in the DH Room the group wandered down to the playing fields to watch the 1st XV take on Nottingham High School. The result was somewhat disappointing, but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the 17 OBs, who were reminiscing about wins and losses (and the infamous 55 straight wins for the ’87 team…)

After the match we returned to the main building for Afternoon Tea. A trip to the ‘Mucky Duck’ couldn’t be missed, which was followed by a curry in the city centre.

Everyone was keen to see an annual event set in the calendar and to grow the reunion into something huge. Look out for a date in the new year.
