Who was the Krypton Factor star ;D
Also somebody in my year was on Blockbusters aswell i think it was Andy Cummins!
Louth Pilgrim can you tell me the name of the cricket award please. I won it probably a year or two after 1980!

Don't know what happened to him KON..... ;)

Sadly Chris (Ciff) Marshall died at far too young an age.

Not when they're that old.

..........that's a bit like saying Cookie only scored one goal in the 85 Trophy run. Can't remember the overall total but raised a fair whack for DOCATEF on a per point basis. Bought my first car with the appearance money......whatever happened to the Marina coupe?

More Floreat Bostona.
Now looking at the Speech Day programme from 13 Nov 1981
Lots of the usual surnames feature.
On the sporting front Scotney, Lyon, Isaac, Hildred, Everitt are there again.
Malcolm Sharp did ok on the cricketing front.
Chris Lawrence is there - a stalwart BUFC keeper.
Young cricketer awards went to Nigel Truepenny & Barry Tyler from the year above you KingofKnaves.
Wonder if either of them made it to a higher level?
Reminded of multi prize winner D McGladdery - he wouldn't win any prizes as a class prefect mind.
It also tells us that J P Everitt was on his way to Bangor Uni to do Maths & PE - I hope he's using those skills now.
