racticalities of daily life in the 1950s. Pegasus was the last of the great Amateur football teams and this fascinating, often humorous book, is a fitting tribute to it. This Second Edition features additional photographs and an Afterword by David Miller. Ken Shearwood, now in his late eighties, was an excellent all-round games player, and at soccer a frankly uncompromising centre half. who was to become an integral part of the briefly flowering Pegasus side from Oxford and Cambridge which, remarkably, twice won the Amateur Cup. ... After Shearwood retired from the game, he [taught] - not without considerable difficulty in the maths area - at Lancing, where he was to stay, as master, housemaster and registrar for the rest of his working life, serving under six headmasters. Pen pictures and anecdotes - shrewd, funny, sparkling, but never unkind - abound, for this is a contented man, happily married for over fifty years. That great Arsenal and England footballer Joe Mercer once introduced Ken Shearwood to Derek Dougan, the Irish International, as the "best centre half in England"; even if he exaggerated, he may not have been too far from the truth.
