Today is Billy Day! Get down to O Road playing fields this afternoon:

12pm: rugby match starts; 1-3: Billy Day; 2pm: football friendly kicks off
Netball also on this afternoon.

Billy Day is the day for the annual sports day, known round these parts as Billy Day. The times have been finalised as 13.00-15.00, at the Oxford Road playing fields, only a 5 min walk from college.

On offer will be an array of Fitzwilliam sporting prowess; the rugby team have a match which kicks off at 12.00 against a touring French side (turn up early if you want to watch), football have a friendly against Gorton kicking off at 14.00, and there will hopefully be a mixed netball fixture sometime between 13.00 and 15.00, which you will be able to take advantage of.

There will also be the customary bouncy castle and BBQ, this year featuring carbonated beverages.

It would be great to see as many people down as possible – sport is something which really holds our college together, so it is certainly worth celebrating.
