History of Repton

7 Jan 2020
Archives
The C.B. Fry Scholarships are named after one of the Repton greats.
Fry was one of the great all-round athletes: as well as excelling in the 100 yards sprint, he equalled the world long jump record (23’ 6½”
or 7.17m); played football for England and in the FA Cup Final for Southampton; and captained both Sussex and England at cricket, scoring more than 30,000 first-class runs.
 
Fry appears on several occasions in Hugh Brogan’s History of Repton (attributing his footballing skills to yard football and disciplining a Cross boy who threw a squib which landed on a passing lady’s bustle). If you want to obtain a copy at the discounted price of £32 (+p&p), order at www.profileeditions.com/a-school-in-england before 22 January.
