Extract from the reminiscences of Edward Vipont Brown (1863-1955) - preview
York

  • Nor was I bad at Association Football
  • We were well coached by one of the Masters (Will Pearce), but we were only allowed to play matches with Quaker Schools
  • On one unfortunate occasion the headmaster was over persuaded and we were allowed to play the City team
  • This we succeeded in defeating by many goals, but the language of our opponents was far from parliamentary and the experiment was never repeated in my time

  • Contributed by his granddaughter Susan V Hartshorne, York MM
