We frequently receive correspondence related to our web site. Often it relates to family history and the subject of this page is no exception. Scott Manning found details of the Hough Cup on our site: Here

Mr Manning has kindly provided the team pictures below. It shows the Clinton Collegiate team of June 1907 who beat Barrie to win the Hough Cup that season. The picture shows Scott's Grandfather Lewis Manning (middle row, far right) and his cousin William Manning (front row, 2nd from right—sitting directly in front of Lewis).
