The OSM exchange will not be not be going ahead this year

It is with sadness, we have to report that the OSM exchange will not be not be going ahead this year and maybe not for the immediate future. As a club over the last couple of years or so, we have suffered with a number of stumbling blocks including, but not limited to, a lack of engagement from the teams potentially involved, shortage of teams in the relevant age groups and generally the shift in general attitude to this kind of activity as the years have gone on. For over 30 years, the relationship has been a cornerstone of Thamesview’s history and we hope to, one day, resurrect this tournament with our close and treasured friends at OSM.

We thank Dan Humphreys for his endeavour in doing everything he possibly could to keep things alive and also all those over the years who have organised, hosted, participated and created this history with our friends from Utrecht. We also off not just our apologies to OSM but also our unreserved gratitude in hosting us over the years. I hope, this will not be the last word in the OSM journey and this year is just merely a postponement until we are ready to be involved again……

We also must also thank the OSM organisers over the years and especially for the relationships formed during the organisation of this exchange trip, Erwin Wildschut, Rick Cats and Jacques van Schalkwijk, we can not thank you enough for all your hard work.
