St. Mary's Football TeamSt. Mary's Football Team: Jamaica Tour, 1957

St Mary’s College Old Boys Association will be hosting a reunion to commemorate the 50th anniversary of 1957’s brilliant football team, the successful season and the enjoyably triumphant tour to Jamaica. The reunion takes place at Portuguese Association on Richmond Street, on June 2.

The Saints finished second to Malvern, failing by a single point to take the championship and had the distinction of beating the champions. In Jamaica, the Saints beat four college teams and lost only one match to a combined team which included some Jamaican players.

Among the members of that team were Dr David Freeman, Mervyn O’Connor, Clem Clarke, Richard Nieves, Rowley Forde, Ernest de Coteau, Aubrey Welch, Ralph Horton (hidden), Freddy Dalton Brown, Tyrone de la Bastide, Wenceslaus Thomasos, Dr Jeffrey Chipsy Mahon, Guy Boldon, Calvie Griffin.
