Silver Sports Cup

Suggested by Clive Edwards (WS 1959-66).

This special silver cup was awarded to the winner of the 220 Yards (Open) race at Warwick School Sports Day.

The cup was donated by Clive Edwards whose father, Robert Harry Edwards (WS 1932-37), was awarded this cup in the 1930s. School records show that Robert was also the winner of the 200 Yards (under 12) race in 1933. Robert Edwards went on to become a police officer in the Leamington Borough Police Force and later in the Warwickshire Constabulary, serving for 27 years before retiring to a small farm in West Wales.
