Things to Remember

The Burscall Shield

Some years ago the Buscall Shield was handed to the Sports Centre for safekeeping.
The shield had been used for winners of a swimming competition run by the Loch Neaton
Swimming Club from the turn of the last century. Below is a picture of Frederick Harry
Crook who won the shield in 1911. Also is the medal he won the previous year, 1910.
The picture shows the trophy with 11 winners shields and it now has 22.
Mr Crook was born in December 1892 in Tottington and spent most of his life in
London and Watford where he ran a grocers shop. He died in June 1953.
His great grandson, Roger Johnson, supplied the photos and information.
