Hello all!

As Field Club President, I am here to address all your college sport related needs. I keep in touch with all the captains, to make sure that Trinity students have as much sporting enjoyment as is possible.

I am also in charge of organising college-wide sporting events like the Freshers' and Alumni Sports Days, as well as the annual Varsity Match against Christ Church College, Oxford.

I'm a general sports fanatic, having previously captained Trinity for Rugby, Basketball and Mixed Netball, as well as playing a handful of other sports in between. I just about find time to satisfy my sports-obsession around my engineering degree, of which I'm going into my final year.

Once you've tried it, it will be obvious how college sport is the perfect complement to your studies, so don't be shy, and do get involved!

See you around Trin.

Lots of Sports Love,

Hi everyone!

As your Field Club Secretary, I assist David in the day-to-day running of the Field Club and the organisation of its events. Behind the scenes, I essentially do lots of admin jobs including keeping this lovely website up to date, and also managing our brand new Instagram page (find us @trinityfieldclub!).

So what do you need to know about me? I’m a fourth-year Law undergraduate, having just come back from year abroad in France. I’m also a massive netball fiend- seriously, I talk about it way too much- and that’s what led me to being part of the Field Club! After captaining netball in second year, I wanted to get more involved and now here I am- your secretary!

If you have any questions about college sport, do drop me or David an email- we’re always more than happy to hear from enthusiastic sportspeople! Also, please keep an eye out for all the events we're holding, and drop us an email if you want to know anything more. Looking forward to meeting you all in October!

Sports love,

Hi all,

I’m Raj your BA sports representative. I look after the grad side of sport and ensure that there is plenty of sporty things for BAs to do! This year we will be continuing with our tradition of Saturday morning parkrun as well as hosting Johns for our annual sports day, along with watching big sporting events in the BA rooms.   

If you have any questions about college sport, do drop either me, Sarah or David an email - I’m always happy to hear from people keen to get involved with sport, whether it be for a kickabout on the backs or joining one of the many teams.

Have a fantastic year

Much Trin love,



Dr Jeremy Fairbrother, a Fellow of Trinity and formerly the College’s Senior Bursar, has for a while been fully enjoying his promotion to the Field Club Treasurer role! As our Treasurer, he manages the Club's accounts, keeping our finances in the black and paying off the expenses the Club runs up over the academic year. All funding proposals ultimately are approved by the Treasurer, but please do ensure all correspondence goes first to the Field Club president at, who will help you fine-tune your proposal and pass it on.


Dr Joan Lasenby, a Fellow of Trinity in Engineering and a one-time Trinity undergraduate herself, is the woman who makes sure that our lovingly-crafted and diligently-funded sports teams have a place to play their sports. Dr Lasenby, in conjunction with our excellent groundskeeper Darren Wood, co-ordinates the use of all the College’s sporting facilities, at Trinity Old Field and beyond. She knows everything there is to know about college sport, right down to a precise history of changes to the gym’s opening hours, and runs a mean Google calendar. Questions should be directed in the first place to the Field Club president at, who will also happily forward all your messages of gratitude and praise to Dr Lasenby.
