 Old Boys vs New hockey match
 
Former students showed that they still have what it takes at the Old Boys & Girls tournament last Saturday (May 30).
The event, which was part of the Warrington Campus 65th anniversary celebrations, saw students past and present returning to Padgate, lacing up their boots and donning their kit, to take part in a variety of sports matches.
 
The old boys triumphed across all of the sports they competed in, including football (first and second teams) and hockey, with former student and current Vice-President of the Warrington Students' Union, Tom Little, returning as part of the team. 
He said: "It was really good fun to play against some of the people I used to play with when I was a student. It is always interesting to compare stories with alumni who were students at the Warrington Campus before my time. Sharing stories was very much what the day was about.
"It was great to see so many old, familiar faces getting involved with different activities and really demonstrating what it is like to be involved with the University of Chester. It showed that even after you’ve graduated from the University, your experiences will always remain a part of your life and the friendships formed here will stand the test of time."

The weather held well for a great afternoon of sport and it was the current teams that triumphed in the girls’ matches, beating the old girls’ teams in netball, football and hockey.
Roberta Micci who, represented the old girls in netball added: "Whilst I’m gutted we didn’t win, the current team were brilliant and deserved to win. It was great to get the kit back on and play regardless of the result. It was great fun!"
