Missing Rugby and Cricket Team Photos

Thursday, 19 May, 2016 -- Helen Wilson

As many of you know, there are a number of gaps in our set of sports photos on display in the corridor between Central Hall and King George’s Hall.  We have made a number of requests in the past to OEs who might have one or more of the missing photos, and we’re doing so again now. Headmaster Guy Sanderson is keen to fill in the gaps this summer if possible.

Steve Hill (1990) has set the ball rolling with his photo of the 1989-90 1st XV.  He came into school on 19 May and handed it over to Mark Stickings (right in picture) and Adrian Thomas (left).  Matt Tidnam (1988) has sent us the 1987-88 picture – thanks Matt.

If any of you have at home a copy of one or more of the photos on the list below and would be prepared to lend it to us for scanning, we would be most grateful. Or, if you prefer, by all means scan it yourself at 300 dpi and send us the digital copy. In a few cases we have a low quality picture and would like a better one. 

These are the years we are seeking the following team photos:

Rugby 1st XV: 1959-60; 1960-61; 1965-66; 1969-70; 1972-73; 1973-74; 1977-78; 1980-81; 1981-82; 1982-83; 1984-85; 1985-86; 1986-87; 1988-89; 1990-91; 1991-92; 1993-94; 1995-96; 1999-00; 2000-01; 2001-02

Cricket 1st XI: 1967; 1973; 1974; 1977; 1984; 1989; 1995; 1996; 1997; 1998; 1999; 2000; 2001

If your photo contains all the names, excellent.  If it doesn't, perhaps you could have a go at the ones you know and leave us to get the others. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
