It's finally happened. The boys from Brighton College have won the cup at Littlehampton for the first time! In a tight final against Crawley, they were losing 1-2, but after some stern words from player coach Aidan Phillips-Cragg and captain Alex Brown, the tide turned. Tries from Ollie Kirwan, Henry Mason and Alex Bushell (all only 18 years old) changed the game, and the boys came out on top 4-2. It was testament to the Old Brightonian's spirit that they managed to turn the game on its head.
