New Street Junior Sports

Past Council schools promoted various junior sports teams. These soon became addressed as the New Street Schools, although junior pupils were actually classed in a separate building situated rear the roadside primary school. With addition of an adjacent sports field, those entire grounds were officially renamed John Davis Schools to also feature a successful junior football club.


A 1933 Boxing tournament heralds New Street schoolboys as the first within the county to match Nottingham City elementary schools, in what was described a thoroughly healthy and wholesome recreation. School Boxing Club was run by assistant master Mr V Crompton, maybe influenced by student teacher Mr F Allsop who had boxed at Mansfield Grammar School.
  Ten contests held in the central hall consisted three two-minute rounds all won on points. Bouts resulted in:- M Sevens beat J Chapman; H Hollingsworth beat H Gregory; H Clarke beat H Radford; D Flowers beat J Flowers; S Hallam beat J Parkin; J Vardy beat J Stainwright; L Hallam beat C Barsby; H Keeling beat D Hague; C Hold beat J Hardwick (Mansfield Grammar School); J Bingham beat R Marriott.

Mrs Betty Smith remembers sports days initially held on the nearby Huthwaite Park. Its full size football pitch would still be occasionally used for seasonal club training throughout later years.

Interesting to find the school once had access to Sutton swimming baths. This was not afforded so early throughout later years, until teenagers had reached Secondary school age.
