Cambridge performed well at an excellent Wilson Trophy held at West Kirby 5-7 May 2017, with 30 teams competing – including three from the USA. Birdham Bandits won, with a Cambridge alumni team (Royal Thames Blue) finishing runners-up in a nail-biting 2-3 final. Overall results were as follows.

Congratulations to everyone, especially the alumni team on finishing runners-up and Cambridge Blue on finishing ahead of the Society. Two photographs of the alumni team are on the O&CSS website (opens in a new window). After trailing in the early rounds, Cambridge Black pulled out the stops in the last few rounds to leave Oxford with the wooden spoon.
