In October 2013 we recreated a football match between the Masters and the pupils played exactly a hundred years previously. Hurst made an effort to commemorate the centenary of WW1 by remembering this football match in which two of the boys' team and 4 of our Masters' team were later killed in the First World War. We lost a total of 108 old boys and 4 Masters in WW1, a huge toll on a school that at that time only numbered 183.
This is now being recreated for the 7th year this Friday 20th September:
Staff versus St John's Annual Football Match.
Kick Off 6.15pm South Astro
