The ASA has a thriving Facebook page and has recently established new LinkedIn and Twitter feeds to enable Ashfordians to keep up-to-date with each other and with news of the Foundation and the ASA.
We held the annual Ashfordian Hockey and Netball Tournament on Friday 24 March with brave Ashfordian teams taking on the might of the current School first team squads. Many thanks to all Ashfordians, parents and staff who came to cheer along the teams along on a rather chilly evening.
The matches were pretty close this year: the School Netball VII won by just a single point 21-20 while the Boys Hockey XI crept past the Ashfordian XI by 3-2. Salt was further rubbed into the wounds when the Staff XI defeated the (by now) tired Ashfordian hockey players who repaired, post haste, to Cameo for pick me ups.
Particular thanks to Suki Athwal and to Lana-Emily Foyle and Mr Tom Butt from the School’s PE Staff for their tireless work on and off the pitch in getting the whole event together. The Ashfordian squads were as follows:
Netball: Lana Foyle (C), Lois Goodman, Sophie Howland, Charlotte Roberts, Ellie Semadeni, S-J Stewart, Jess Newall, Emma Levitt, Scarlett Spicer, Kara Costello, Jess O'Shaugnessey, Abi Ballard, Grace Nichols, Sophie Buchanan
Hockey: Suki Athwal (C), Dom Savia Roscoe, Charlie Wraight, Tom Semadeni, Charlie Howitt, Toby Keet, Nathan Heathcote, Chris Rabjons, Lenny Maks, Will Austin, Max Nicholls, George Norris, Joe Shields, Geoff Perkins, Harry Grant, Euan Nicholls, Brad Gipson, Alex Linkins
We’re looking forward to taking on the School again next Spring and have plans for a round-robin cricket and rounders tournament to be held on the School’s new pitches at Great Chart in Summer 2018. If you’d be interested in playing or helping to organise this event, please contact David Young
