In those days we were more into sports. Our team did not disgrace itself, making 159 for 9 wickets, in reply to the Minstrels' 165 for 8. George Jackson scored 78 of our runs, and Mike Solomons made a respectable 10.
Note that the admission charge, including the cost of the programme, was 1 shilling (5p today!)
