This press cutting is from the Chronicle and Echo on 25th June 1949. It features Sid Cato and Peter Isaac prior to the official formChronNACHistory415scaledation of NAC.The date is confirmed both by the date on the newspaper and the cricket match commentary on the rear. It is noted that Sid is using a bow in the shot, but from what we are told he had never shot before starting the club.

On the right is the rear side of the press cutting – now sadly in a bad state. The Chronicle and Echo originally had two to three editions a day, and you won’t find  this report in the local collection at Northampton library as it was not in the edition filmed for the archive.
