Whaddon Old Boys Skittles Team after collecting their cups as Hospital Cup runners-up and Division 10 runners-up in  1967. It's worth noting the suits, shirts and ties, the late  Dave Evans the Cheltenham Skittles League Chairman for ten years is seated in  front row third from left.

The Whaddon Old Boys were founded in 1963 by members of the Whaddon and College Boys Club and progressed over the  years to the Premier 'A' where they spent 10 years, now playing in the Division 5 badly, but enjoying it !!

1966 / 67

  The team from back left were Mike Watts, Roy Harris, Phil' Thatcher' Judge, Ray 'Snowy' White, John 'Minnie' Minett, Ray 'Milky Bar ' Blake Ray 'Spud' Taylor, Dave 'Sam' Thomas, Vic 'Cass' Cole. The front row from the left is the late Ron Radford, Kenny ' Digger 'Fitts, the late Dave ' Donkey' Evans, Clive 'Chinky' Chandler, the late Phil Watts, the late John 'Jex' Cross, Mike 'Ted ' Hall.

Many of you would have played skittles at the old Saracens Club will have played  in' The John Cross Room' .
