Brian Skingley (1936-1999) – From the ‘Headmaster’s Review’ by Mr C. F. W. Hicks in Mayfield Magazine Issue 11, December 1952. The I.S.A.A. Sports. Perhaps the most exciting race for Mayfield supporters was the 880 yards under 15. Our representative was Brian Skingley who was well-known to everybody as a member of the famous Ilford Boys’ Football Team. Brian was perfectly fit but, owing to his football commitments, he had been able to do little special training for this race. However, soon after the start, he went into the lead and the question arose as to whether he could keep up the pace he himself had set. He did! He came in first!
