Red House in 1984 - Picture 002
Old Cavaliers Cricket Match 2
Mr Sayers (ex-headmaster of Red House, Latin teacher and, latterly, groundsman) and Mr and Mrs Maltas probably talking about cricket and Trent College. John Sayers taught at Trent College before coming to Red House. The Maltases sent 3 of their sons from Red House on to Trent all with scholarships.
In the background by the cricket nets is the roller for the cricket square which was known affectionately as "The Yellow Peril" as it was hard to start and, when it was finally making its glacial progress towards the square, equally hard to stop.
