John Ingram dies

Sadly we have to report the death of John Ingram (Merchant Taylors’ & St. Catharine’s) who has died after a long illness. John nevertheless made it with his wife to the Opening of the Eton Fives courts in November and was delighted to see the Rugby Fives courts in action that day. A schoolmaster by profession, John was a staunch supporter of the Past versus Present. A gentle giant of a man, he played against Oxford in 1955 and 1956. The photograph shows him as a schoolboy playing Jeff Orchard (Alleyn’s & King’s) at Alleyn’s in 1951.
