The Under 25s vs Over 25s match gets very competitive!

Saturday 14 December saw yet another competitive bout between the Under 25s and Over 25s at the annual Richard Holmes Memorial match. Held in memory of former pupil and sports enthusiast Richard, the event is always a special date in the Dame Allan’s calendar. The cup is hotly contested every year between the Under 25 team, which features some current pupils, and the Over 25 team of Old Allanians.

This year, the U25s held on to their winning streak and, more importantly, £217.54 was raised for Marie Curie UK. Our thanks to everyone who turned out on a chilly December morning to support the players and commemorate Richard.
