This story from the North Devon Journal tells how the 'ton-up' team of rugby stars from Pilton School were so good they scored more than 100 points on three different occasions while beating Bideford, South Molton and Chulmleigh schools. Neil Kevin David Smith reminded us of their success and asked what happened to the rest of the guys after he left town in 1982 and never came back due to work (apart from occasional holiday trips). Neil met up with a few of the team last year at the 50th birthday school reunion. "It was nice to see them and other school mates after 30+ years," he said.

Thanks to Shaun Thorne we have the names: BACK ROW - David Young, Paul Lock, Paul Rogers, Bobby Anderson, Rodney Young, Trevor Batson, Steven Short, Darryl Mayne, Chris Brown, Richard Parsons, Andrew Turner, David Chick & Peter Hawkins. FRONT ROW - Chris Taylor, Ian Roulstone, Neil Smith, Michael Purchase & David Kelland. Lois Jane Harris remembered some of them.

Thanks to Neil, Shaun and Lois for their memories logged on Facebook.
