OHA Annual Dinner 27th May 2015
We are delighted to announce the 2015 Annual Dinner will be held at Haberdashers' Hall, West Smithfield on Wednesday 27th May and our guest speaker will be Lord Moynihan, himself a Haberdasher; won silver at the 1980 Moscow Olympics, became an MP in 1983 and rose to become Minister for Sport in Margaret Thatcher's Cabinet. He became Baron Moynihan in 1997. He was Chairman of the British Olympic Association and hence instrumental in the success of the 2012 London Olympics. Colin was Third Warden of the Haberdashers' Company last year and all those who have heard him speak attest to his sparkle and wit after dinner!
Following feedback from members, we are again delighted to invite partners as well as guests to the dinner. It is a great chance to catch up with old School friends and many people take the opportunity to arrange for people from their generation to come along as a group. This is often used to mark significant milestones since leaving School, whether that be 5 or 50 years ago!

Old Haberdashers' RFC
The 1st XV ended the season with a narrow win over fellow high flyers Harpenden, the final score was 35-28. A classic game of two halves with OH dominant in the first half with the wind and slope and Harpenden coming back strongly in the second half with the same advantage. The win moved us into 4th place with Chiswick and Hammersmith & Fulham retaining their 2nd and 3rd places as they also both won their last match.
The 2nd XV finished 3rd in the Merit Table behind Letchworth and Tring. In the Knock Out competition they lost narrowly in the first round (46-40) to Hertford in an open, high scoring match. They played Hertford 3's again in the final of the Plate Competition on 25th April, they pleyed really well but lost narrowly 25-26. Winning some silverware would have been a great end to a good season for the 2's who were a credit to the club.
