  1. Does anyone remember the 1967 - 1972 year group at Ellis Guilford ? We had a great football and cricket team during this time. We reached the final of the u16s county cup final and played against a team from up Carlton way. They had three Forest apprentices including one who played for Notts County for about ten years. We had some really good footballers as well but never pushed by the school like they would be these days. I remember turning out for the half past nine cross country races organised by RMClarke then playing for the football team then going home and playing for Parkside up at Bulwell Hall Park in the afternoon. Those were the days ! i remember the physics teacher Kendall. He taught physics - interestingly I kept his physics notes and used them myself when I qualified as a teacher in 1979. Hard but fair bloke. Thought Adams who taught maths was really good as well as RM Clarke. I went on to get a chemistry degree and would have liked to have let him know how well I did. We always played football on the back field and remember watching the rocket heading for the moon in 1969. The sky was totally clear and you could see it against the blue sky - awesome. Always remember me and Kev Barker going to the lido on hot Summer days. After 3 days swimming and sunbathing we heard a load of others were going to skip school - so we we went to class and the others got done ! Happy days.Think that was the year we got pasted 4-0. by Clifton All Whites on Meadow Lane. Trying to think of people in my class and what happened to them - Kev Barker, Gary Stevenson, Derick Swift, Rob Woodward, Billy Beale, Ady Ashley, Wayne Reynold, Kate Heggaerty, Luba Costu, Leslie Parrish, Roger Dawkins, Jimmy Simpson, Barry Moss, Steven Crane and many more. Does anyone have any photos at all ? Any whole school photos or class photos they picked up during their time there ?
  2. I remember Jonny one eye and on first day at Ellis Guilford got rulered with Barry Moss on the back of our knuckles by ms manterfield who was deputy at the time. She was about 80 then. No idea what we did. Barry Moss won the English Cross country title - then went on to represent Notts AC. Best teachers were RM Clarke - science. Not to be confused with the other Clarke who taught Geography. Frank Hunt ran the football team - still alive I understand in Wollaton - Admiral Rodney. Dan Appleton - good historian though.
