With just over two weeks until Varsity, it’s time for our second instalment of Team Southampton sport star interviews. We chatted to Ollie Craig, vice-captain of the Quidditch club.
What’s your nick name?
I haven’t been given the honour of others bestowing a nickname upon me yet.
Fourth year French & Spanish
Position in the club?
Three words to describe you:
Completely relentlessly optimistic
Your most embarrassing moment at Soton?
There is a photo of me collapsed on my stairs in my student house during 2nd year after coming back from a night out… before 8pm.
What makes Quidditch different to other clubs?
It is the only co-ed, full-contact sport in the world.
Describe a typical social night out?
We are good old fans of a classic Wednesday social at Jesters. Nothing fancy, but a heap of fun.
What are your kits like?
We basically have rugby kits now, with the classic red and white of Southampton.
Three reasons why freshers should join this year:
First of all, Quidditch is a sport that evokes powerful memories in every person of our generation. It is one of the only sports in the country with such a strong community spirit across the whole country, not just within your own team. Also, we were recently ranked 4th in the country and are aiming higher, so you can be sure that it will be Quidditch of a very high standard!
