In the summer terms, Rugby and Cross-country were replaced by the slightly more palatable (or more accurately, slightly less strenuous) Cricket and Athletics.

Whilst the school had a proud cricket tradition, I am afraid that for me, it only conjures up the impression of standing in isolation on a field waiting with vain hope that the ball will miraculously come towards me in a slow gentle ‘catchable’ arch and knowing that my eventual innings would probably take up less time than that required for me to fit a pair of pads on the right way up.
