Rhubarb 2019

ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b


until 2021. Harrison Ward (A, 2013-2018) helped England U19’s to a series win in July 2018. Stewart Innes (H, 2004-2009) rowed for Great Britain and finished fourth in the Men’s Pair at the Rio Olympics. Unfortunately, in 2017 he suffered from a chronic hamstring injury and as a result lost his National Lottery funding. The good news is that Stewart has recovered and returned to rowing and is now looking to support his training through sponsorship and public speaking in order to pursue his goal of Gold in Tokyo in 2020. Any OSE able to help can contact him via the OSE Office. Congratulations to John Woodcock (G, 1940-1945) who, at 91, has been given a lifetime achievement award for his sports writing. Cricket correspondent at The Times from 1954-88 and Editor of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack for six editions from 1981 until 1986, he has attended more than 400 Test matches and his writing has been published in the sports pages of The Times every year for 63 years. David Willcox (A, 2014-2016) had a truly amazing 1,020-mile bike ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End meeting up with local MS groups along the way. In total he raised £1200 and would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who donated to the charity Multiple Sclerosis making the trip possible. He would strongly recommend the trip to anyone who likes a challenge and wants to see more of the UK.


Tom Loake

From the OSE Sports Desk As mentioned in r h u b a r b 2018, Tom Loake (A, 2003-2008) was selected to compete in Scotland’s 2018 World Cup Lacrosse team in Israel in July 2018. Scotland came 11th (out of 48 teams at the World Cup), with Tom playing in all eight matches, taking his total caps to 29. More recently he played and captained in the home internationals (a tournament for the home nations, a bit like the Six Nations), where Scotland came second,

beating England and losing to Wales. We wish him luck with selection for the next major tournament, the 2020 European Championships taking place in Poland. Izzy Rayner (M, 2011-2016) took part in the World Triathlon Championships in Australia in September 2018. Since leaving the School Izzy has been reading geography at Glasgow University as well as training. She is currently ranked 20th in the world for triathlon and came fifth at the European championships in Glasgow last year. Cricketer Miles Hammond (H, 2009- 2014) signed another two-year contract for Gloucestershire last July and current pupil Ben Charlesworth joins him there
