A hugely successful term for sport

Worth School

An array of sports awards and colours have been presented to reflect a hugely successful term for the Sports department at Worth.

In the final assembly of the Lent Term last Friday, Director of Sport Mr David Burton congratulated two rugby players who had been accepted on to the Harlequins U16 Player Development Group, two of our cross country runners competing in the national finals, one of our fencers reaching the last eight at the Public Schools Fencing Championships and three boys and girls who had been selected for either Sussex or Surrey’s U16 representative squads.

On a team front, Mr Burton reflected on the 2nd XV rugby team enjoying an unbeaten season which is a remarkable feat given the level of rugby played and the quality of opposition encountered. He also spoke of the U15 rugby team winning the Sussex Cup after beating Hurst in the final, the U14 team became Sussex Sevens champions and the girls’ rugby team competed at the national sevens for the first time as well as reaching the Plate final at the Worthing Sevens. On a football front, the 1st XI finished runners-up in the Sussex and Kent Independent School League, while the U14 team also finished second in their league and reached the quarter-final of the County Cup.

The 2nd XV and U15 rugby teams received Head Master’s Outstanding Achievement ties to warm applause from everyone assembled in the Abbey Church and House trophies were also presented. This was followed by the presentation of Most Valuable Player and Most Improved Player awards for the U12 to U15 age groups for girls’ hockey, rugby, football, netball and boys’ hockey. Senior awards will be given out at the annual Sports Dinner on Wednesday 25 May.

The presentations concluded with Half Colours and Colours being awarded. These are the highest honours on a sporting front at the School.

Congratulations to all winners and achievers. You have made the School proud.

Here is a selection of pictures from the presentations. Unfortunately, we cannot picture every pupil.
