Trev’s Times – WEEK TWENTY

So week 20 is finally here, it’s nearly time for the Easter break! I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait. I also can’t wait for some warmer weather. Shout out to everyone who braved the wind and cold to watch the outdoor sports this last weekend, hope you’ve got the feeling back in your toes. Anyway, here’s what’s going on this week.

Patriots

A big big thank you to everyone who came to take part in or support Patriots. It was a long but fun weekend, and it was great to see so many of you there. A big congratulations to Cartmel for their win. It was a close one, but we are so so proud of all you Furnessians. A shout out to our amazing sports officers Tom and Jess for all their hardwork organising Patriots. We hope you guys had a great time. Looking forward to next year!

Nick Lewis Memorial Match

On Saturday we had held our annual Nick Lewis Memorial Football Match. Well done to Furness FC, who won against the FC Old Boys 4-3. Thank you to everyone who came to play or support, and congratulations to Joe Leslie (Furness Alumni) who won the Furthest Travelled Award after getting here all the way from Chicago!

Wave Your Flag

 

Represent your country at the intercollegiate Wave Your Flag night on Wednesday! You can come in your national dress, or wrap up in your flag. They’ll be food, free sugar entry (first come first served) and music from all over the world. The night starts in Grizdale bar at 9pm.
