CRICKET The Cricketer Magazine wrote to let us know that in a judging panel to determine the Top 100 cricketing schools in the country, Tiffin School was adjudicated to be one of those schools. They received 250 submissions this year, and to determine the Top 100 they judged each entry against a set of carefully considered criteria set by The Cricketer. It really is a great achievement to make it into this year’s guide. We will appear in their prestigious supplement ‘The Playing Fields Of England: An A-Z Guide To The Summer Game’s Top 100 Schools 2018’ accompanying the December issue of the magazine (hits the newsstand on 24 th November). CANOEING During the summer holidays Arthur Leech, now in Year 13, raced in the National Canoe Championships and is now National Junior Canoe Champion for this year. As a result of this he has been selected by British Canoeing to represent Great Britain, competing at the Olympic Hopes Competition in the Czech Republic in September; a fantastic achievement.

RUGBY Tiffin rugby started quickly and with mixed results at the beginning of the 2017/18 season. We have a new block fixture on the first Saturday, with eight teams playing Reigate. A mixed set of results but promising performances from all teams. The performance of the weekend went to the U15A team who ran out convincing 40 – 19 winners with Noor Elsheikh running in an excellent try. The 1st XV opened the season away to Reigate on the same pitch they suffered a heart breaking 21- 19 defeat at the end of a long season. With the boys keen for revenge, hard carrying from Kokhulan Ramanathan, Vitti Murugesu and Cameron Helsby as well as incredibly resilient defence led to a first win for Captain Gavin Griffith (scoring below) and his team.

Unfortunately, the 1st XV could not match Saturday’s win against KCS Wimbledon on Wednesday but with lots to work on and a new forwards coach to help out, it promises to be a successful season.
