Harrow County School for Boys

Cricket - 1st XI 1951

This photograph was sent in by both Roy Tapper and John Berge who have also identified the names.

From The Gaytonian, July 1951:

"Captain:  Carroll.  Vice-Captain:  Rose.  Secretary:  Henderson.
Cricket throughout the School has not, this year, experienced the same success as it has had in past years.  The First Eleven, sho started this season with only four "Old Colours," have never really settled down.  This was partly due to the inexperience of the cricket talent in the school and partly to the bad weather, which curtailed cricket practice at the beginning of the season.  Hammond, a new find, has batted very well and has received support on occasions from Carroll and Norman, the latter showing particular promise.  Our bowling has this year failed miserably at times, but on other occasions both Henderson and Edwards have bowled quite well."

Back Row (L-R):  John Berge, Roy Tapper, Alan Wells, Ron Simpson, Pete Hammond, Derek Edwards, Ray Hill

Front Row:  Geoff Norman, Bernard Carroll, Dr Simpson, Mike Rose, Jimmy 'Beefy' Henderson
