Bolton School Former Pupils
Geoff Ogden (1950-1960)
Geoff donated three photographs to the School Archive in March 2012, which show Bolton School boys participating in football and cricket at both a regional and national level.
"The England U18 football team that played Scotland in a secondary schools' international was made up of grammar school and public school boys selected from the annual Schools' Week at Cambridge. It was a wonderful experience to play at Celtic Park (Parkhead) in front of 10,000 people.
"Another friend, Peter Jarvis (1952-1960), was goalkeeper; he later became Chief Executive of Whitbread plc and a School Governor. I played on the left wing and the game ended in a 3-3 draw. Peter and I also gained Blues at cambridge University, playing against Oxford at Wembley - another great experience.
"The two cricket photos are of the Lancs Federation U19 cricket teams in 1959 and 1960, which included Peter Jarvis, Duncan Worsley (1949-1960) and myself. It was very rare for three boys from one School to be selected for the southern tour. Happy memories!".
