Plymouth vs Clyde
The match started off fairly evenly but soon Clyde, through Luke Maslen, started to up their game. With his side steps and game management Clyde began to take the lead scoring try after try. Ed Thompson was hard to hold back, scoring several tries. Plymouth clung on with determination, continuing to threaten with their captain, Thomas Barbour, leading from the front. But unfortunately they couldn't convert their possession and threats into points.
On Friday the 9th November Norwich boys, young and old, took to the pitches to determine this year's house rugby champion.
The headline is a quote from a number of the rugby coaching staff as they watched the Sheffield senior team win the coveted inter-house rugby trophy for this year. The boys had spent many practice sessions reminding themselves of the tactical differences between Sevens and the 15 man game they had been playing all term.
We were very sorry to hear the sad news of the death of Tim Frohwein (Sheffield 1979-1983) over the weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
Written by our historian and from the notes given by
Mrs. Shirley Floyd December 2011.
Sheffield followed a similar design to those of the other houses at Kingham Hill. The purpose being a home for 30 boys and provide a full family life. Its not surprising then this concept governed the internal design of the house, and its supervision. Sheffield consisted of three large rooms downstairs. Playroom, dining room, living room and a kitchen; then the smaller rooms, superintendent's office, bathroom, washroom a boot room and the toilets. Upstairs there were three large dormitories for the boys; also bedrooms for staff and a night toilet and laundry room. If was not long before the staff in the homes were referred to as house parents, the term of house superintendent was consigned to our history book.
