1988-1989: Men's Blues

I played in the Varsity team from 1986 to 1989, as an outside hitter. In those days there was no University sports hall, and we practised & played in Kelsey Kerridge. The student teams were mainly home-grown undergraduates, whereas the Oxford teams were mostly overseas postgraduates. In 1986 we lost 0-3 at Oxford, in 1987 we lost 1-3 at Cambridge, then in 1988 we won 3-0 at Oxford, the year that I was captain, a memorable day! In my final year at Cambridge in 1989 we lost 1-3 at Cambridge. In 1988 and 1989 we took teams to the EVA Student Cup, and finished 5th and 6th respectively. I then spent two years as a postdoc in Boston, USA, and played for Cambridge Volleyball Club(!) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, before returning to a post at Southampton University in 1991. I played for Solent Volleyball Club, now as a middle hitter, from 1991-99, in NVL Divisions 3 & 2 (one season in Div 1). I then moved to the University of Warwick (Department of Chemistry) in 1999, and played a bit with Warwick Riga. I still do some coaching for the Warwick University teams.
