Mike Hudson makes a flying visit

Mike has a perfect view of cricket on College Field

OE news

Mike Hudson (Pennell 2008-12) had a great view of the College when he flew over Eastbourne on Saturday. He sent us this photo, and tells us:

'I was visited by my housemate and very good friend from our Eastbourne College days, Hugh Coates (Pennell 2007-12). I've recently gained my private pilot's licence and so was able to fly Hugh over the College where we witnessed a cricket match in progress. Hopefully EBC was winning!'

The College were playing Bede's on Saturday and the good news is that we won. Bede's were all out for 99 and the College won by nine wickets with a score of 101 for 1. Maybe Mike should fly over regularly and be a good luck charm for future matches!
