Jeremy Hillman unearthed this photograph. I remember every face except the one next to JKH. Can you help? You will observe Sarath Abeykoon in the back row.
Best wishes

It is S.N De Silva or Kalu Hall, the goal keeper who would charge at the opponents and not the ball. He was very good. We never lost a match in both years that he was goalie, which says something.

Thomians, staunch and true!!

Most reverend Signiors;

My thanks and highest regard.

(Worst Hockey Goalie in the history of the STC inter-house competion! The opposition was assured of a massive win. It was left to the Full Backs and Sweeper to resist the onslaught. But (!), by the time they realised their obligations, 4 goals had been scored against us!! Aiyoooo!!!)

CGT couldn't have been Skipper. He knew me too well to pick me year after year.��
There was a 'Dynamo' in Wood or De Saram ... a diminutive Dravidian ... Singham? ... Samuel? ... He threw himself at the oncoming missile and had 100% success.

God bless all.

Hello David,

This is the Wood House dynamo responding!!
Thanks for remembering.
After leaving college I continued as goalie for the Colombo University team and played in the Andriez Shield team with other college guys like Sarath Seneviratne, Trevin Rudra, Cossa Wijeyratne and Butcher Mubarak.

I remember playing against Christopher in the big match - Colombo vs Peradeniya.
Thanks for copying me Chris.
Now I watch and bet on Ice Hockey games.
