St. Benedictís College - Reunion of all past cricketers
OBU, ColomboThe Old Benedictines Sports Club together with its Cricket Wing which plays a very significant role in assisting the Cricket at St. Benedictís College has decided to take the opportunity of the get-together of the 1964 Champion team, to organise a reunion of all those who had represented St. Benedictís College at Cricket from the years gone by up to 2014, as a forerunner to the 150th Anniversary celebrations of the college which falls next year. This reunion will be held on Sunday 2 March 2014 at the college grounds. The full day programme will commence at 8.30 a.m. with Holy Mass, Which will be celebrated at the club pavilion by Most Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Fernando - Auxiliary Bishop of Colombo, who is also an Old Ben.

It was in 1964 that the Bens had the most remarkable cricket season under Sunil Fernando, beating almost all the leading schools in the country outright, and being invincible cricket champions. In order to celebrate 50 years of this memorable achievement, the members of this team are reuniting on Sunday 2 March.

We understand that many past Ben cricketers including those from overseas have already confirmed their participation. This invitation is to all past Benedictines to rally round and join in the fellowship where we could meet our old colleagues and class-mates, reminiscing the childhood days at our beloved school, St. Benedictís College.

A nominal charge of Rs 1000/- would be made at the gate, to defray the cost of lunch. For reservations, please contact Sri Lal De Silva on 0777362105 or email or George Ranasinghe on 0727633437 or email or Shanthilal Silva on 0777759735 or email
