The boys had an early start this Sunday, up and out by 7.10am. Tom, Johnny, Max and Jake are all keen fishermen, however, coarse fishing was going to be a new experience for them. Pete England, the groundsman at Cothill, not only gave them a full days tuition but even cooked us all bacon and eggs once the rods were set up!!! We had wonderful weather and after a slow start, the fish started to be pulled out of the water one after another throughout the afternoon. Jake caught the whopper of the day.
Some great photos of the boys in action, sent in by one of our keenest supporters on the touchline - thank you!
10 year old Leo has become one of the youngest people in the world to become an associate member of the Royal Schools of Music after being awarded awarded a distinction in the ARSM (Associate of the Royal Schools of Music) Diploma this summer. Well done Leo!
A delighted Ignas won the LTA Summer National Tour Finals in straight sets in August. After 4 tough matches Ignas was awarded the top prize in the Under 10 boys singles in Bournemouth, making him the 2018 champion. A fantastic achievement!
In August three Cothill boys (and a pony club teammate) won the Area Regional Pony Club Show Jumping Championships at Rectory Farm near Cirencester, beating over 130 competitors, aged up to 15 years old. Charlie, Freddie and Bertie’s team were delighted to no penalty points in the hotly contested jump off. Nine year old Charlie, riding Caramac, was also 6th individually and was believed be the youngest competitor in the field.
Thank you so much to Isabel for putting this video of the walk together - enjoy!
