AGE - 23

HEIGHT - 6' 2"

DEGREE - MSc Environmental Change and Management

COLLEGE - St. Cross College


Alistair is a graduate student from San Francisco, California. He did not expect to be playing lacrosse during his degree at Oxford, but after meeting David "Brucie" Morris at the Freshers' Fair he was swept off his feet and hasn't looked back. Alistair was born and raised in the States, but maintains dual citizenship thanks to his English Mum. Alistair grew up with a distaste for Cambridge as his parents both rowed for the Dark Blues in the Boat Race, as well as for their respective countries. However, he never took to rowing as he enjoys sports with considerably more skill and hand-eye coordination. After injuring himself during warmups of the first game, "Old Man Berven" is excited to be back running with the young guns. Alistair is still getting used to the lacrosse terminology here, but has picked up vocabulary such as "mate", "pints", and "shoe the tabs".


Alistair is currently in his 13th season of lacrosse. He played during his undergrad at Princeton University, and will also be representing Team England this summer at the World Championships in Israel.
