Photo 5 - Hicks Cup Programme: v Clacton CHS 1960
Relates directly to the Team Photo no 10 taken after the game ; a good win, Noddy Carter was a good captain who led by example.

Photo 6 - Hicks Cup Programme: v Clacton CHS 1962
Relates directly to Team Photo no 7 taken before the game. Some controversy here- as can be seen ALL team members sported the School Colours; just prior to the match, these were awarded to all team members who had not previously earned them, just to present a uniform team kit - much to the chagrin of those of us who had actually earned them by dint of sufficient appearances for the 1st Team! ( and felt that the Honour had been devalued). A comfortable win for what was a very good Palmers Team.
