Missing Old Boys
As from 25 May 2018
the laws on data protection have changed with the arrival of the new
General Data Protection Regulation. The most significant part of the new laws
is the need for explicit consent from Old Boys for the use of stored data for activities
beyond the purpose for which it was gathered. This means that although the
Editor can keep the protected database for the annual distribution of ‘The Old
Papplewickian’, the list of Missing Old Boys has had to be removed from the Old Boys’
page of the website because the general public has access to this.
Old Boys' Day 2018.
The Cricket match v the HM’s
Xl was played in the middle of the June/July heat wave and stops for drinks
were essential for survival. The Old Boys batted first on a rock hard pitch,
losing a couple of quick wickets before James Coyne, playing for the first time
for five years, steadied things with an innings of 50 before he retired. He was
ably supported by Tommy Bellm, who scored 20, and the Old Boys’ Captain, James
Brooks, produced his usual 50, before being bowled. With Jojo Regan’s 17 and
useful runs coming in from the other batsmen the Old Boys declared their
innings closed, leaving the HM’s Xl to attack a score of 195. The best bowling
of the HM’s Xl was produced by Harry Bunbury (3-33) who was on temporary loan
from the Old Boys.
The HM’s team began their innings well with their first
wicket falling at 43 and their No 1 scoring eleven 4s before retiring at 50.
Other batsmen scored freely too and the total gradually rose towards the
desired amount, though wickets were falling at the same time, thanks to some
good bowling by Will Harrison (5-30.) With an hour’s play remaining the result
could have gone either way, but in the event this year the Headmaster did not
succeed in frustrating the endeavours of the Old Boys with his usual dogged
defence, and his team were all out for 173. It was an excellent game, full of
excitement, where the Old Boys managed to emerge victorious.
