Norwich School's Old Norvicensian (ON) squash team, made up from alumni of the school, won their fifth title in one of the sports oldest and most prestigious competitions – the Londonderry Cup

After a hiatus of four seasons, the Norwich School ON squash team lifted the Londonderry Cup in dramatic style after beating old rivals Millfield 4-1 in the final last Friday at the world famous RAC club in Pall Mall, London.

In the end it was a comfortable win for the ONs who now go into fifth place in the all-time record, edging above both Eton and Harrow.

The team of Stuart Cowie, Ian Cox, Marcus Cowie, Matt Bolt and Mark Thomas then headed to the prestigious Long Bar for the presentation and celebrations.

Mention should also go to Tim Allenden (93-96) for his contribution in the early rounds as the ONs saw off Harrow and Lancing College in the quarter and semi-finals respectively.
