Gordon Cley

Recommended Posts

I think I've asked this before, without result, but I'll ask again. Does anyone remember Gordon Cley, otherwise 'Skip', who ran the Aspley Boys Club during the 50s and I think into the 60s? A man of infinite patience to whom I wish I'd been more polite. I often wonder what happened to him; he did an awful lot for us lads.

Yes, I remember Gordon Clay (I think it was, not Cley) when I was in the ABC in the early 1950s. His office was above the headmaster's (Thomas Gunn). Last I heard of him was a few years ago, and he had reached a ripe old age - in his nineties, I think. A nice man and one you couldn't fall out with.

Gordon used to take a small group of members and Old Boys abroad every year under canvas. I went to Paris, Bavaria, and Southwest France.....I was only 11 in 1953....good times. Lovely man.
