Sport at King's
I am pleased to announce the following crop of appointments to lead King’s sport into what looks like being an exciting year ahead:
Tom Hill, after many seasons of success with the Under 16 and Under 15 XVs, gains a deserved promotion to become Head of Rugby where he will continue the good work undertaken by Chris Roberts and Roy White.
Jen Wilson, our experienced Olympian, joins forces with Aaron Blumfield, who has made such a notable impact in his first year at King’s, to head up both Girls' and Boys' Hockey over the two winter terms. They will have the opportunity to build on the good work already done by David Bridle.
Charlie Burson-Thomas takes over the Sailing Club that has been so successfully nurtured by Richard Maltby.
Sally Dawson, who has been captain and coach of the University of Kent 1st team, takes over the Lacrosse.
David Whorlow, an experienced international swimming coach, will inherit a strong and vibrant club from Pam Murray.
….. and although the 1st XI were defeated in an exciting finish at Felsted, the day was notable for the batting of George Baker White (LN, 6a: see photograph), who scored 140, the highest individual score by a King’s batsman since 2005, when William Bruce hit 150 not out against Trinity.
