History

Henry Clarkson, known as Bert, presented the H R Clarkson trophy in 1955.  Henry Clarkson was the Club's first Treasurer.  Bert would never let the Club spend a shilling if a penny would do.  Whilst on holiday on the Isle of Wight, Bert called on Uffa Fox and started the process that led to Uffa Fox opening SSSC and becoming Patron.

First won by Eric Smith in 'Blue Belle' in 1955.
