More on that hockey match

LAST week we published a picture of the Gainsborough High School girls’ hockey team that played an unauthorised match against the boys of Gainsborough Grammar School in 1958/59.

This week it’s the turn of the boys to be featured and if anyone can name then please call 01427 615232 or 01427 619572.

As was hinted last week, the match caused a scandal because the girls fraternised with the opposite sex and, coupled with the fact that it was played on a Sunday, there were threats of expulsion with angry parents visiting the High School headmistress demanding an explanation as to why the match was played.

How times have changed!
