Vintage KC football teams of the ’60s to be celebrated tonight

first_imgThe all-conquering Kingston College football teams, which won both back-to-back Manning Cup and Olivier Shield titles in 1964 and 1965 to remain unbeaten in two seasons, will be celebrated tonight at a 50th anniversary Fortis Festival hosted by the Kingston College Old Boys’ Association at Witty’s Lounge, Savannah Plaza, starting at 7 p.m.Widely regarded as the best-ever schoolboy teams by virtue of their dominance and impeccable record, the 1964 squad comprised Tony Keyes (captain), Neville Oxford, Trevor ‘Jumpy’ Harris (father of former national player Wolde Harris), Lloyd McLean, Franklyn ‘Bowla’ Morant, and Dennis Johnson, as well as Mickey ‘Mouse Brown’ Vernon, Malee Miller, Winty Davidson, Baldwin Fisher, and goalkeeper Ossie Bailey.Despite losing Keyes, Fisher, Davidson, and Bailey, the 1965 team was just as devastating with as many as 10 members elected to the All-Manning team that year. Ample replacement for Keyes and company were found in Patrick ‘Patto’ Kirkwood, Carey Coke, Leopold ‘Offside’ Jackson, Derrick Bryan, and the colourful Leslie Lucas replacing Ossie Bailey in goal. The squad also included two very good players in Joseph Alvaranga and Roy Black, now a popular selector on KLAS radio and musicologist, who will provide the music for tonight’s tribute.All were honoured at a dinner hosted by the New York Chapter of the Kingston College Old Boys in April, 1997 in New York.Significantly, in 1964, Kingston College achieved the grand slam of schoolboy sports, winning not only the Manning Cup, but Boys’ Champs and the Sunlight Cup cricket competition (now Grace Shield) as well, a feat unmatched in the annals of schoolboy sports.Franklyn Morant was a member of all three teams, while ‘Jumpy’ Harris and Mickey Vernon were key members of the winning Sunlight Cup team, and the outstanding sprinter, Tony Keyes, a member of the trail-blazing Champs’ team, which had the distinction of being the first schoolboy representatives to run and win at the Penn Relays in the USA.- Orville Clarkelast_img read more
