Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : January 16th 2017 Contents Malvern Sports Club, de-
scribed as an institution of
class, was founded in June
1942 at Siegert Square in
Woodbrook when a group of
friends and family members
took the decision to formalize
a loose alliance into a club for
the purpose of playing compet-
So come June the club will,
therefore, celebrate its 75th anni-
versary and a number of events will
be held throughout the year to mark
that special occasion.
Its first President was renowned
journalist, George John with the
first executive comprising Len-
nox Pierre as vice president, James
Grosvenor, secretary, Hamil Hen-
ley, the treasurer and John.
The club colours of wine and
white and the design of the for the
club jersey were the ideas of Errol
John, distinguished playwright and
brother of George. The club motto
"Victoria Concordia Crescit" was
also formalised at the inception.
Malvern quickly made its pres-
ence felt on the football field and
its most outstanding achievement
was the defeat of the Jamaica na-
tional team in 1947.
In that very year the entire Mal-
vern forward line of Carlton "Putty"
Lewis, Carlton "Squeakie" Hinds, Fedo
Blake, Phil Douglin and Lio Lynch was
selected to play against the then British
Guiana. Malvern's football team also
defeated Barbados in 1950 and St. Vin-
cent in 1968.
While the early years were the most
successful, the club's footballers under
Carlton "the General"Franco, thrilled
football spectators in the early six-
ties with an exciting brand of football
dubbed the "cha cha cha" or dancing
football which brought the club many
In recent years the standard of foot-
ball within the club has declined but
with the celebrations planned, a resur-
gence is expected.
In 2015 our first women's football
team was established. While not ter-
ribly successful, the team continues
to improve and we do expect to have a
vibrant successful team in the future.
Malvern also played cricket with-
out the same degree of success, but
was promoted to the Championship
Division on several occasions with-
out being able to compete at the top
level consistently. Noel Robinson was
selected for national team in 1962 and
Frankie Ragoonath was one of the five
cricketers of the year in 1966.Subse-
quently, the decision was taken to stop
The other major sport played by the
club was field hockey. Malvern men
hockey team was without a doubt the
most outstanding team in the 20th
century, being crowned national cham-
pions for the first ten years the com-
petition was played. This was mainly
due to the inspiration and guidance of
Ian Harris who also captained the na-
tional team and subsequently became
a national coach.
In 1982, ten players from the club
were selected for the national team
to the CAC Games. The club also won
two international club tournaments,
the first in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1980
and in 1985 in Curacao.
The club is entering an exciting phase
with the under 21 and the senior team
being crowned indoor champions re-
cently and players the Marcano broth-
ers and the Emmanuel brothers and
Lyndell Byer representing the country.
The women team has not had the
same degree of success but has con-
sistently been among the top teams and
has had national representation from
Michele Gordon, Margaret Hinds and
Penelope Stephens in the earlier years
and Sherlan Cabralis, Teresa Lezama
and Kherdine Gonzales , more recently.
Malvern's members Gregory Lewis,
Hypolite Sosa, Lance Pierre, Carlton
Hinds, Vere Greer and Aldwyn Hislop
have been inducted into the national
sports Hall of Fame.
Malvern will therefore, look back
with pride at its first 75 years and look
forward with eager anticipation to-
wards its century celebrations in 2042.
