Matt Berry (R. 2001-05) is hoping that his efforts for England Students can secure him a professional contract for next season.

Max Maidment (Ryle 2004-2006), has signed a professional contract with London Scottish.

Nik Pass (A. 2007-09) Deputy Head of School 2009-10 and 2010 leaver made his debut for England Students at Rugby Union this weekend against France in Lille. He is currently at Newcastle University and played for the 1st XV for two years.

The annual Peter Rumney Memorial Match took place on Saturday 29th December 2018, where over 20 Old Brightonians came together to defeat Hove RFC, 39-15.

A man of few words, Steve Radojcic threw himself into the evening on Friday 7th March, holding court with his usual style and panache. He has asked the OB office to pass on his thanks to all those who helped organise the match, namely Teds Littlewood (Ry. 1990-95), Dan Heal (Ry. 1990-95), and Tom Aiken (Al. 2003-08). Special thanks to Stephanie Littlewood for coming up trumps with a cake, despite the fact it was neither Rado's birthday nor the end of season match against Hurstpierpoint.

The OB Pelicans and supporters arrived at East Grinstead on Sunday morning in the driving rain. After a delay to assess the pitches, it was decided that, despite the conditions, the tournament would go ahead. Only 12 teams were available so the draw was re-organised and we played the Marauders first. Despite a try by Ryan Bhimji, we lost to the semi-professional Marauders 10 - 5.

The OB's won the Egham 7's on Saturday 23rd May in a new tournament record points tally. Hugo's Hooligans won all 7 games including a tough semi final game against the Household Cavalry Regiment 21 - 14 before going on to beat Windsor (one of the top teams in South West England 3) in the final 35 - 7.

Ollie Phillips (H. 1996-2001) is in the pink after a dramatic debut for Europe’s most glamorous club last night.

Paymahn recently played for Iran in the preliminary qualifiers for the Olympics in the UAE.
