Kevin Hawney Cup Race
December 8, 2018
On Saturday 8th December, members of the Old King’s Club, the King’s College School staff and the King’s College School pupils gathered for the 11th consecutive Kevin Hawney Cup race on Wimbledon Common.
It was a good mixed turnout and a competitive race. Despite an unfortunate wrong turn on the course, all runners finished and Hector Revill, representing his brother in the 4th form, won the race in a very good time of 15:10 over the 2.7 mile course. He was closely followed by Morgan Rennie in the L5th.
The race was a great opportunity for OKs to catch up and to have a cup of tea afterwards and we look forward to hosting the 12th race next December.

Old King’s Club v. Old Kingstonians Trophy
September 18, 2018
I’m pleased to report that we managed to retain the Old King’s Club v. Old Kingstonians trophy on 18 September by a score of 3-2. Quite an exciting day, as we were level until the end of the last match.
As the OKs remarked, this was the closest they have come to winning the trophy. It now has OKC as the winner for every year we have played for it since ints inception in 2013. In fact we have won the match with/without the trophy since we first met in 2010.
Individual results were:
Druckman and Phillips – Won 4 and 3
Taylor and Gregory – Lost 6 and 5 to a very fine performance by their captain, Richard Wickerson – no shame here!
Gems and Damon – Lost 2 and 1
Grover and Messent – Won by 2 holes
McGinn and Lovett – Won 4 and 2

Surrey Schools Golf Societies Festival
July 5, 2018
This year’s competition was played at Bramley GC with a shot-gun start for the 72 players. The weather was beautiful being hot with a light breeze and the course was in fine condition despite not having seen any rain for ages. The star of our team was Lance Condon with 37 points, which made him runner up to the best score on the day of 42 – well played Lance. Jonathan Poole had a good round scoring 32 points but the other three, myself included, failed to get into the thirties.
The winning team was from the Old Tiffinians with 175 points from five players, which is a remarkable average of 35 points. Bramley provided an excellent lunch for us all and one of the organising team, Brian Collison, set up a bar tab for every player’s first drink -thank you very much Brian and Martin. The competition will be organised by the O T’s next year and the year after at a venue to be decided by them.
