Thanks to Andrew Ganado (B85) for organising a superb weekend.  Friday afternoon was spent touring the school, having tea with the Head Master and members of staff followed by a pre match supper at The Holcombe Inn.

Kitted out in their custom made strip, a closely fought contest took place in which the OMGs held up well against a much younger side.  Ultimately experience overcame enthusiasm resulting in a 1-0 win for the OGs.  Afterwards the victors supported the First XV and then enjoyed a match tea in the time honoured tradition at the Pavilion.

The OG team members were:

Andrew Ganado (B85)
Christian Ganado (B91)
Paul Trapani Galea Feriol (B98)
Mark Gasan (B99)
Paul Apap Bologna (R90)
Matthew Mizzi (U93)
Armand Grech (R91)
Jerome Grech (R92)
