1906 Cross Country on Barnes Common

The line-up before the start of a cross country race, believed to be on Barnes Common early in 1906. The Belgrave contingent are on the right of the picture in the striped jerseys. The moustachioed gentleman (10th runner from the right) is Sam Sherrington. Sam was an outstanding runner who won the Haig & Haig Cup, awarded to the winner of an annual handicap competition. The cup became Sam's for 'all time' when he won it for a third year.
