Badminton team 1964/5

Martin Jones writes -   "It is not the familiar figure of WRP. It is in fact Mr Newlands (also a geography teacher) who arrived in 1963/4 and set up a badminton club soon after.    

The Bourne mentioned Britton (captain), Moors, Walker and Homotas. Britton is presumably the lad in the centre of the front row but I don't recall him or any of the other names mentioned. Confirmed A Berridge (back row right) and Kier Carroll (third from right, front row).   

Front row third from right (little guy) is definitely Kier Carroll, my year and a whizz at badminton. Back row right hand end looks like a Berridge, probably the older brother (?Alan) rather than Dennis who was in my year. Can't think of anyone else and The Bourne tended not to focus on  'fringe' sports in those days. "
