The London version of the Thurstan v Isipathana Big Match was played at Northwick Park on Sunday 22nd June 2008. It was great to see both schools producing players with so much talent.

On behalf of the OBA (UK), I wish to congratulate the Thurstan team for winning the match so convincingly. Our young Thurstanites worked hard at this with commitment and determination. It really was a win for both schools as the event brought out the best of all participants proving it to be a true example of sportsmanship, unity and harmony. It was hard to distinguish who belonged to which school as it was such a friendly affair. There was so much organisation and preparation and all that was done with whole hearted co-operation from both sides. We want to thank Isipathana for being such good sportsmen and for the brotherhood.

The evening get together provided further opportunity for comradeship and enjoyment. The music, the dancing, the food and the cordial atmosphere kept everyone going merrily into the late hours. There were also some talk of a joint musical evening during the year and that’s a great idea.

We wish to say a big “thank you” to both teams, the participants and the organisers for a wonderful day. This certainly should continue as an annual event.

Best wishes.

Lucky Panagoda

President – Thurstan College OBA ( UK )
