Simon Green Award
The Simon Green Cup is awarded for endeavour in games though consistent commitment, effort and perseverance over the last term. The final decision is always very difficult and for the summer term 2017, two pupils, in the same sport, shared the award. This was presented at the Headmaster’s Assembly on the final Friday of the academic year.
The citations for the award were as follows:
“In the space of just two years at the College Walter Huchu will have played over 100 fixtures for the College in rugby, rugby 7s, hockey and cricket. His commitment and dedication has been extraordinary and he has been a role model to anyone who has been fortunate enough to play with him. Walter is a modest chap who has also managed all of this whilst being Head of School and achieving, on occasion, straight fives in his eRCs for effort in all his subjects at A-level. This term he has also been 1st XI cricket captain and has led by example one of the best bowling units and teams the College has ever had. There is no question in Walter’s endeavour and he fully deserves this specific award and title as he leaves the College.
Ben Twine, over four years at the College, has played in over 145 fixtures in rugby, hockey, golf, squash and cricket. He has been a Bibby award holder for cricket and played four seasons in the 1st XI cricket. As well as playing Sussex cricket and more recently being a part of their academy programme. Ben has always given of his best in whatever sport he has played as well as being a great role model around the College. There is no coincidence that Ben’s efforts in cricket has been the cornerstone of some of the most successful seasons the College has ever over the last three years. Without question Ben deserves to this accolade and recognition of his efforts within sport at the College.
