St Peter’s College student George Roberts (Modern Languages – French and German, 2022) was awarded the Sporting Moment of the Year award by Oxford University Sport for scoring 79 in the T20 Varsity cricket match against Cambridge.

Oxford University Sport said,

‘In Trinity Term, Oxford University Cricket Club faced Cambridge in their annual T20 Varsity at Lords. OUCC won the toss with St Peter’s student Ben Swanson (Medicine, 2020) electing to bowl first. Wickets were shared amongst the bowlers, with spinners Ben Swanson, Chris Mingard and Vignesh Venkateswaran slowing Cambridge down in the middle overs. Cambridge reached a respectable 156-7 off their 20 overs. OUCC opening batter and Vice Captain George Roberts set about chasing this total with a superb innings of 79, ably supported by cameos from Justin Clarke and Max Kirkby through the middle, and Josh Royan's closing runs. This is the first time OUCC have beaten Cambridge at Lord’s for over 4 years and the first T20 Varsity win in 3 years. George was instrumental in this win.'
