On the run
A cavalcade of mercurial inflewences and Newspaceman's flagrant collection of china and enamel ephemera brings forth my great-great-grandfathers 130yards dash [handicap] trophy . He [GHJupp] won this while at a meet for the London Athletics Club Oct 13th 1867. He also played in the 1st match against an Australian Cricket Team in Britain in 1868. The Australian team were all Aboriginal people. The matches in this series were not recognized by the Australian Cricket Board until the 1990's.
