Morecambe Scout Sports

Morecambe Guardian 21 July 1951

Successful revival of Scout sports

Withdrawn in recent years as an annual event because of inability to get a ground and poor weather. Morecambe and Heysham Boy Scouts Association sports -the first for three years -were held on the grammar school sports ground yesterday week. Mr. R. Blacklock (president of the association) presented the trophies and was himself the donor of event awards.

The Association challenge cup for scouts under 15 was won by the 4th troop with 31 points, runners-up being the 5th with 30, and third the 16th with 24. The “Bone” senior trophy devised by Mr. Fred Driver went to the 5th with 17 points, the 4th and 11th being joint second with 9, the 2nd taking third place with one point.

Flat races – 80 yards (11-12) John Fearon (16th): 100 yards (13 -14) Michael Greenhough (4th), 100 yards (15 and over) Brian J Gray (5th), quarter mile (15 and over) Peter Allan (4th), 220 yards (13-14), Michael Greenhough (4th), 220 yards (11-12) Michael Elvin, (5th), mixed relay (11-14), 5th troop (Michael Rawlings, J.
