Old Breconians, Young And Old, Return To The Ccb Fold

Friday 19th October saw around 90 Old Breconians gather at Christ College on the eve of the Llandovery match.

The dinner was initially a reunion for the 1962, 1982 and 1992 1st XV’s. Many members of these squads joined much younger Old Breconian men and women at a most enjoyable pre-dinner reception in Henry’s (old Masters’ Common Room) and then in the Dining Hall. A wonderful three-course meal set the scene before Steve Fenwick (ex Wales Rugby Union, Rugby League and British Lions player) spoke about his career at club and country level.

Those attending from the 1962 1stXV era were:

A P Baker, M S Foster, P L C Hayward, J C Millidge, M R Muir, R J Pugh, M J Riddle, R A Sellers, N W Thomas, J L Trailor, R B Tyndall.

The 1982 group consisted of:

J O Elston, N P Gibson, J P Golding, D R Heinrich, J S Hogg, W E Holmes, D R Kelly, S D Kennedy, J W Lewis, M R Lowry, S Maggs, H de R Morgan, K Noble, W M J Pryce, C G St J Reed, R E Stephens, S M K Thomas, W P Thomas, N D Elston.

Old Breconians representing the 1992 team were: M Hatton, R J Poole, R D Price, L P F Spight, K D Thomas, G Wiseman, P Woodham-Kay, P S Wright, Mrs Z K Connolly, H A W Copping, Miss S J Davies, D J Harrison, M J Hepburn, T G F Howe, D J B Morgan, E D Morgan.

It was particularly rewarding to see so many younger Old Breconians joining in with festivities including the girls and boys from the leavers of 2008 plus a mixture of others who left between 2006 to 2011. The Old Breconian Association is a vibrant and thriving organisation and Old Breconians of all ages and genders are encouraged to participate in events such as these.

Following the dinner, guests retired to the Boar’s Head where many a tipple was drunk and memories shared although Boots the Chemist did report a roaring trade in headache pills the following morning!
