    Dear OLs

    Lancing Rovers’ summer has begun with a bang with a 19 run win over the Old Monktonians in the first round of the Cricketer Trophy. George Holman led his side to a hard fought and low scoring win in what has been dubbed “The Miracle of Monkton” as availability issues and a game starting at 11am on a Sunday morning in Bath gave us considerable headwinds to deal with. Batting first, Rovers reached a modest 152 with Jeremy Green anchoring the innings with a magnificent 61 on a tricky pitch. Old Monktonians were then dismissed for 133 with Henry Gane starring with the ball taking 4-27 to secure an epic victory. Rovers now face Old Hurstjohnians in the 2nd round at Hurstpierpoint College on 5 July. It would be great to see any OLs who would like to come along and support.

    After our second round tie, the Rovers Cricket Week begins at Lancing College with the following fixtures scheduled:

    6 July v Steyning Cricket Club

    7 July v Uppingham Rovers

    8 July v Sussex Martlets

    If there is anyone there who would fancy a game, please get in touch at, who can then put you through to our tour manager, Mike.

    LOBFC: Arthur Dunn Cup News

    Read David Baukham's account of the Old Salopians vs LOBFC HERE.
    Further details and match information can be found on the Arthurian League website HERE.

    LOBFC 1st XI
    The LOBFC narrowly lost to Charterhouse on Saturday in a tense and close-played final match of the Arthur Dunn Cup. The score was nil - nil until the final minute of extra time, when Charterhouse scored the winning goal. Commiserations to the 1st XI (and all football supporters) It was a superb match, with the team playing incredibly well in the second half and next year should be an excellent year for the 1st XI. 

    LOBFC Vets
    The LOBFC Vets narrowly lost to the Old Etonians in penalties at the LOBFC Vets Final on Sunday 26 April.It was a great game, with both sides paying a very high standard of football. 

    LOBFC Report 2014/2015
    The Lancing Old Boys Football Club are two months into a new season, they are unbeaten, they have seen a number of changes, a few new faces and as ever, there is a buzz of expectation for what the season holds.

    The 2013/14 season saw the 1st XI, marshalled by the auditory skills of talismanic captain Simon Wright, finish in second place in the Arthurian League Premier Division, reach the semi finals of the Arthur Dunn Cup and the quarter finals of the AFA Cup.

    The 2nd XI plying their trade in the Arthurian League 2nd Division found themselves pulled into a relegation dog fight in the wet winter months. However, mercurial captain Jordan Sriharan, through a series of Churchillian team talks guided his team to a respectable mid table finish.

    The veterans team, available to any who admit they are over the age of 35 had a mildly disappointing season having won the Derrick Moore trophy the season before. Jon Carr, a sergeant at arms type rallied his greying warriors on a monthly basis to coax out the old skills. However, the team were not able to progress beyond the first round of the Surrey AFA trophy and came unstuck at the semi finals stage of the Derrick Moore cup.

    The summer saw changes, long standing president and supporter of the club Neil Grainger made way for Martin Todd, a formidable midfield roamer in his time. Chairman Gaz Allen who oversaw some great changes in the club in his two years at the helm stepped aside to allow the ever thinking Duncan Wilks to continue to shape the clubs future. There are new captains, Sam Salameh for the ones and Mike Johnson for the twos, both being keepers, one could say both teams are surely in safe hands.

    On the social side the club enjoys an annual dinner held at the Radisson SAS in Portman Square in March of every year and a Christmas party, this year taking place at the Goat pub in Clapham Junction on the 13th December. Training takes place every Wednesday evening at 7.45pm, overseen by stalwart Nigel Bennett.

    The football club benefits from a kind donation from the Lancing Club which is used to fund the travel of some of its younger members to and from football matches. Players from universities as far as Durham and Bath travel to London on a weekly basis to fly the LOBFC flag, all made possible by this funding.

    LOBFC is always on the look out for more players, if you are interested please contact Chris Williams on

    Club funding for LOBFC
    The LOBFC continues to have several recent leavers amongst their ranks in both their first and second teams. Whether coming up from Sussex or down from University, the Club is able to help with their travel expenses due to generous funding from the Lancing Club, for which we are most grateful.

    Report: OL Men's Hockey vs Lancing College
    The Lancing old boys managed to salvage a 4-4 draw against the college and keep their undefeated title for another year. The OLs brought some young faces in, who all proved their worth, particularly Jason Grinstead with a lovely strike from the edge of the penalty box. Trevor Phillips, 54, came back for his second game in the sticks, this time coming through unscathed. The game was very end to end with lots of chances for both sides. The school side looked well drilled under the new Director of Hockey, Joe Naughalty, but with some slick short corner routines by the OLs a draw was a fair result. As always the OLs enjoyed coming back and really appreciated being well looked after!

    OL Tennis Club
    Formerly known as Lancing Old Boys’ Lawn Tennis Club (LOBLTC), this is an active and sociable club which is always glad to welcome new members, usually playing on the excellent grass courts at Lancing College. Regular matches are played versus The Old Carthusians, Grasshoppers LTC and Weald LTC. In the past, we have had annual matches with Oxford and Cambridge colleges where OL players have been students. We have also had fixtures with the Dieppe LTC, Public Schools’ Old Boys LTA, UCS, Ardingly and Hurstpierpoint Colleges. We should like to revive some of these fixtures and would be very pleased to hear from any OL tennis player who could suggest new opponents, as well as the match organiser.

    D’Abernon Cup
    We participate each year in this public schools’ old boys’ lawn tennis competition. On 5 April 2014 at Stoke Park, Oli Tritton and Mike Simpson successfully got through the first round. Oli Tritton, Mike Simpson, Robert Camping and Michael Savage lost narrowly in the last eight to UCS in a match played at the Roehampton National Tennis Centre on 13 July 2014. Our D’Abernon Cup organiser is Harvey Rawlings on 01403 711 770.

    The club was founded in 1947 by Rodney Townley, who ran it for 46 years. His enthusiasm and care for OL tennis was exemplary. It was he who established the link with Dieppe LTC. Those who remember Rodney will recall extremely happy tennis times, filled with much fun and laughter. So keen was he on his tennis that in the latter years when he was less mobile, he might have been seen on the tennis court with his walking stick as well as his tennis racket. Since 1994, Richard Rawlings has been executive chairman. He will be retiring at the end of 2014, when his successor will be appointed. Also, Peter Stotesbury, who has been our excellent Hon Treasurer for at least 35 years, has asked to step down. Will any members who are interested in this position please contact our Hon Secretary.
