The game took place on a pitch in Regent’s Park, and was enjoyed by a large number of spectators. At the end of what proved to be a tight contest, the staff prevailed by a single run.

Winning Staff XI Captain Julius Grower, Teaching Fellow at UCL Faculty of Laws, received a newly-made trophy from the Dean of the UCL Laws, Professor Dame Hazel Genn.

Julius Grower, said:

‘Once again, we have had a fantastic day. There has been participation from across the entire Faculty, and the great spirit we all share really shone through here’.

Aaron Robertson, Captain of the Student XI, was just as positive.

Aaron Robertson said:

‘I have never played in a closer game. A big thank you must go to the organisers, and to the Faculty itself for giving them and the event itself so much support. Congratulations to all the players who participated in such a memorable game’.

Another game will be played on the first Saturday in June, next year.
