Earlier this year I discovered an old scruffy record I had made of the Hockey 1st X1 results and goal scorers in the ’60/61 season. I sent a scan of it to Colin Brook as I thought he may be interested and it may bring back some memories but I heard nothing from him.
On Sunday I rang him to check he had received it and found he has changed his email address He also had a problem with his computer and lost all his records of addresses and contacts. (Colin’s email is now updated in the Register). Colin confirmed he is in good health and still much involved in village life in Westfield, East Sussex. Besides being a Governor of a local school he is also a Vice President of the cricket club in which he takes a keen interest.
Colin introduced me to hockey at CVTHS in ’59/60 and it made quite an impact as I only retired 50 seasons later in 2010! He and I both played at Bromley where at one time we had three ex CVTHS pupils in the 1st X1, Mel Pulford, John Barton and myself.
Going back to the record of the CVTHS 60/61 season I would be interested to know whether any of the others named continued playing. Looking through the register, only Chris Donaldson’s name seems to be there. I know Mel Pulford and Chris Munns are sadly no longer with us but does anyone know the whereabouts of the others ?
Similarly, the recent photo of the team in ’64/5 posted by Barry Warren reminded me of a few familiar faces and I wonder if anyone has contact with John Barton who I think moved to the Leicester area in the late ’60`s.
