Following his very enjoyable tour to South Africa last year, Jon is once again looking forward to the challenge of the fickle winds of Bloemfontein. He is also looking forward to being in South Africa for the celebratory 80th anniversary matches, not just with the England team, but with his club team as well. This will be the Old Guildfordians first overseas tour and has been organized as part of the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the founding of his old school, the Royal Grammar School, Guildford. Jon has achieved a number of notable successes including winning the Queen’s Prize, the Grand Aggregate and the St George’s Vase and he has been on 10 previous GB or England tours, including three to South Africa. He is keen to encourage youngsters to participate in the sport by spending a lot of his spare time coaching at his old school. Somehow he manages to fit this in between running the family business of Tool and Plant Hire and property letting, especially during these somewhat interesting economic times!
