The Tump

The famous Tump. The score on the scoreboard is difficult to make out but it looks like Gloucestershire 40, Yorkshire 19 – and it’s a bit of a mystery, as none of our records reflect this. The best suggestion we’ve had so far is that Gloucester played and beat Yorkshire 30-19 during the 1984/85 season, and that the lads operating the scoreboard were a bit over-enthusiastic.

The other photograph, showing the score Gloucester 31 Harlequins 12, was probably taken on 13 Oct 1984.

Our thanks to John Davis for sending us the photos.
