Langwith succumb to Josephine-Butler

WITH College Varsity looming next term, Langwith enjoyed a sporting competition of their own last Saturday, as they competed against Durham college Josephine-Butler for the first time.

At the end of the day the visiting Durham college returned home with the spoils, after showing their skills in a range of disciplines, but the event was still viewed as a success.

A series of sporting events took place throughout the day, from football and basketball to squash and darts, whilst other activities such as baking and a FIFA tournament were also on the agenda.

Langwith Chair Sam Maguire, was delighted with the event, and told Vision: “It was great to have Josephine-Butler down and everyone who took part really enjoyed the day.

“We have been invited up to Durham in the summer term and we are trying to develop a working relationship to share best practise of all aspects of college life with them.

“We also hope that it will be a real boost to participation in collegiate sport and activities in Langwith.”

James college will also soon be taking part in their annual event against Collingwood college, as York and Durham continue to strengthen links between their college systems.
