Game, Set and Match for the Alcuin Cup

St Peter's 13-18

Game, Set and Match for the Alcuin Cup


One of the first sports the government has allowed to be played is tennis and following that announcement Mr Shread was eager to run his last ever Alcuin Cup. With matches played on private tennis courts and all government guidelines adhered to, it turned out to be a fantastic competition.

At the semi-final stage Tom Harpin played James Hanson securing victory 6-4, 6-3 and Toby Baker played Charlie Blackburn winning 6-4, 6-3. The final was played on Saturday in extremely hot conditions between Tom and Toby with the win going to Toby 7-6, 6-3. Congratulations to Toby who becomes one of only three players to win the Alcuin Cup in the 4th Form.

Mr Jeremy Walker, Head Master, said: 'Many thanks to Mr Shread for organising the event, which will be his last ever Alcuin Cup and thanks for all his hard work with boys’ tennis over the years.  The cup will be presented in due course and I am delighted to announce that, in honour of Mr Shread’s 35 years of running boys’ tennis at St Peter’s, that I have decided to re-name it the Alcuin-Shread Cup.'
