  1. This looks like the same Trophy won by the Stockton n Boys team I captained in 1950. there is a photo on the site some where taken in our back garden at 21 Hawthorn Rd Primrose Hill . We had Gus Williamson in our team., Gus was a slow bowler batsman in those days but blossomed into a very good fast bowler batsman in county cricket, opening the bowling for Northants alongside Typhoon Frank Tyson . In later years Gus was r the professional for Bishop Auckland in the North Yorks and South Durham League.. In the 1962 Team Photo is my Cousin Keith Lakey, Keith went on to play for the Boro and finished his career in Australia Playing for the very successful Juventus team. Keith Webster was also in this Juventus team after playing with Newcastle United in the !st Division in England, Keith Webster also served the Stockton Cricket Club first eleven as a wicket keeper. batsman . All three of us Played in Stockton Boys Cricket and Football teams over a period and we are still batting along in Australia at present.


  2. I went to school at Holy Trinity with a Bruce Pallister, who lived in Billingham, and wonder if his family has anything to do with this shield. I know there are a fair number of Pallisters on Teesside, including Gary who played for Boro’.


    • Bruce Pallister is my younger brother, now living in the Isle of Wight. A good soccer player, but certainly not the originator of the Pallister Cup. Most likely, this was set up by my cousin, Gary, – a professional who played for England.
