A photo of the rugby cuppers final in 1967 in which Selwyn played against Trinity Hall. This was the climax of the most successful season for the rugby club for several years. The final in 1967 actually resulted in two separate games as the first was a draw. A replay was required which also resulted in a draw and so the teams agreed to share the cup. We are grateful to alumnus Roger le Clercq (1964) for donating his photographs to the college in 2012 and for his help in identifying several members of the 1967 team. Anthony Stanton is nearest the ball and other members included David Norris, Derry Bancroft, Peter Price (captain), Dennis Gethin, Andy Preece and Peter Lewis.

Alongside our continuing high academic ambitions, Selwyn is going to celebrate in 2020 the role of sport in college life – and its benefits for physical and mental health. We have therefore chosen a photo of the women’s football team from 1993 for the first archive image of this year.
We are grateful to Prof Claire Warwick, the captain of the team, for providing some thoughts and background to the photograph. This is a picture of the, then very new, Selwyn women’s football team, founded in 1991. The report in the Calendar for 1993 shows how successful the team was in being promoted to division three and conceding only 10 goals, while scoring 61. They also equalled the University record for the highest score in a match against St Catharine’s with 14-0, watched by their stalwart band of supporters, The Rainbows. They reached the semi-final of the plate and played very well but unfortunately were beaten by Newnham. Two members of the team became blues: Suzanne Collier was Selwyn’s first women’s football blue, followed by Anna Bever the year after. Special thanks is given in the report to the then coach, Dr Mike Sewell, now our Senior Tutor, for his support.
Charles Phillips and Sutton Hoo 1939
Our archive image for November marks the 80th anniversary of the discovery of the Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon ship burial and treasure from the 7th century King Redwald, and follows on from the opening of the new visitors’ centre by the National Trust at the Sutton Hoo site this summer. www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sutton-hoo
