Form Plaque: 1891


This unattributed description, most likely written by John Gregory Wiggins, appeared in the Spring 1932 edition of the Alumni Horae:

Eights were first used in the boat clubs this year, hence the crew used as a crest for this shield. As supports we have two cricketers, one Sam Morley, and one a Miller, the Miller’s House A. A. having challenged the School this year. The fox’s head in the lower section of the shield reminds us of Morley’s shooting of a very large fox on the School grounds this year. In the Birmingham News of this year we find the following: “Many Birmingham Cricketers will be pleased to hear that old Sam Morley who left this city for America a few years ago is still in the flesh and playing as well as ever. Sam Morley is a wonderful old man of 67 and still an active cricketer.”
