Fawcett School, York Place

Running for Russell House

By Terry Jackson

I found the Fawcett School section a few weeks ago and was prompted to look back in my archives as I knew I had a couple of photos.

Indeed I did. This is photo of me aged 13 running the final leg of the 4x100 yds at Loder Road and winning for Russell House. This photo appeared in the Evening Argus.

Any more of my fellow athletes out there who can remember these sports events? If you can, please leave a comment below.

I remember you Terry - we used to play football together with David Gunstone, Colin Wilkinson and a few others. Wish I could still play now.

Good to hear from Ron. I have sent a couple of photos of the Fawcett 1st and 2nd X1s of 1951. There will be a few there that you will remember. I think they will be posted to the site quite soon. I cannot run at all now, bad knees from too much football. But I spend a lot of time on the golf course which keeps me healthy and fit

Just to say I was captain of Russell House in 1951-2. My most amusing memory was going up to receive the Mathematics Cup for the house one assembly, given that I was thrown out of the Maths class by Mr Fordham and did not take the subject in GCEs!
