Last year, Old Peterites Sports Club won the Overall Championship while Old Joes Sports Club won the Main Cricket Tournament. This is the flagship event of the Old Boys of the four premier Catholic Schools in Sri Lanka, namely, St. Anthony’s College, Katugastota, St. Benedict’s College, Colombo 13, St. Joseph’s College, Colombo 10 and St. Peter’s College, Colombo 4. Old Boys of these schools come together once a year as a tradition to celebrate talent in camaraderie and fellowship whilst reliving their glory years.

The Annual Saints quadrangular tournament was the brainchild of the Old Benedictines for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of their OBU in 1963. Various schools were invited for this inaugural tournament, but coincidently only three schools responded namely St. Anthony’s College, St. Joseph’s College, and St. Peter’s College. Old Antonian, late Ranjith Samarasekera was the mainstay of the Saints Quadrangular until his sad demise in 2017. He galvanized the OBUs subsequent to the inaugural event and made this into an annual event that surpassed all expectations. He has been present in every organizing committee up until the tournament of 2016. A trophy in his memory is on offer since 2017 for the overall winner. Organizers would like to invite alumni of four schools and the Cricket lovers to be there this Sunday to witness the action at Darley Road.

Here’s wishing all the best to four teams and to further strengthen their Saint’s brotherhood!
