P. Clear was their outstanding performer and won
the 100 yards, the 220 yards, and the Long Jump,
and was second in the High Jump – a very fine
performance. Padwick, who has gained his
‘half-purple’ for cross-country running at London

about three yards.
At the conclusion of the races, the Challenge Cup
was presented to the Old Boys’ Captain
(R. A. Kingsnorth) by the Headmaster.
