Old Victorians' Association

Welcome back to all our Old Victorians

 

The Old Victorians' Association comprises all former students who have graduated from Victoria College Jersey as well as serving and former teachers. It aims to promote fellowship between Old Victorians worldwide and to help support the school in its continued success and position as a leading education establishment in the Island.

The Old Victorians' Association Council, which sits on a quarterly basis, has 12 members and acts as the executive elected body of the Association representing Victoria College alumni.

One of our aims is to connect OVs in Jersey and across the world and to support the school and its students, especially when they move into their careers. You can join the OVA at any time to receive updates about events, news about the school and other former pupils.

Annual dinners

The two key dates in the OV calendar have been the dinners in London and Jersey - prime events for renewing links and socialising in a unique way. the London dinner usually takes place in a prestigious venue, such as Lords cricket ground. Venue and details will be available in due course.

Sport

The OVA runs successful cricket, hockey, shooting and squash teams, and also competes against the school at cricket, hockey, shooting and football. There is a highly successful annual OV golf event at the Royal Jersey.

Cricket

The Old Victorians Cricket Club, generously sponsored by Rathbone Investment Management, have traditionally run two successful sides in the local weekend cricket leagues. We also have a more social Evening League side playing once, sometimes twice a week.  

Whilst the emphasis for the Premiership side is on high-quality cricket, the Rathbone OV Reserves look to provide a link between up-and-coming schoolboys (the "new OVs") and some highly experienced campaigners. The Evening League side aims to put out a social team, and all get a fair opportunity to perform.

Hockey

The Old Victorians Association currently enters two club teams into the local Jersey hockey league systems - Convicts and Victoriana.

Convicts contains a number of the club's top players and compete in Jersey Hockey Association Division I and Victoriana compete in the JHA Division II.  Old Victorians have been the dominant force of Island hockey in recent years, winning numerous league and cup titles. Victoria College has produced the Island's top hockey players over the past decade and many OVs play in Jersey men's first team. OVA Hockey, training is at 19.30 on Thursday evenings at Les Quennevais from September to March.

Shooting

The Old Victorians' Rifle Association is headquartered at the Rifle Range on College Field and is headed up by the Hon. Secretary, David Le Quesne.

The OVRA competes annually at Bisley, in the Angora Trophy and the Donegal Badge which is shot concurrently with the JRA Island Championship. Additionally the OVRA competes in the Victoria College Cup which pits the shooting skills of Old Victorians against current Victorians. A small-bore match between the OVRC and the old enemy, Old Elizabethans, was established in 2013. The cards are to be fired before the end of April and, after marking, the result will be announced at the Imperial at Bisley.
