A quick question !

Post by Gnatalee » Sat Jun 09, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello everyone

I am just having a clear out of items that I have kept for far too long (bit of a hoarder :-() and have come across a "silver coloured" cup with a bakelite base and It has inscribed upon it:

H.P.C.L
2ND DIV
1938
W.H.JONES


I know who the person is but am wondering what H.P.C.L stands for - High Peak ******* League? Is it Central, Cricket, or something else?


Thanks in advance !

Gnats :P

Hi Gnats,
Can’t really say for sure but .....
a quick search on “find my past” newspapers gives 66 articles relating to ‘High Peak Cricket League’ , so that does seems likely.
Will keep having a dig about and see if anything else turns up 😀
Cheers for now,
Gail

Thanks Gail

I did wonder about it being cricket because I knew he did play cricket but wasn't aware of a league, or of who he actually played for. Oooh, the questions I should have asked lol !!
