50th alumni sports comp

Thank you to all who entered our 50th anniversary Alumni Sporting Memories Competition 

The winners are as follows:

  • Second prize: Gavin Ward (Geology/Physics, 1985) - wins a framed Aston rugby jersey

 The judges commented: “Several of the sports teams have brought great distinction to the University in all sorts of ways - winning national tournaments, competing internationally, undertaking fund-raising events for charities, developing the skills of individuals who have represented their country and encouraging participation in sports generally and enhancing the collegiate team-spirit of the University. Of the examples that could be selected, the Cobras rugby tour of Canada illustrates so much of this, it is an ideal showcase."
