Some people are surprised to learn that Boston Grammar School’s main winter sport is football (soccer). The stereotype of a grammar school is one which plays mainly rugby.
The featured image on this post is of the Boston Grammar School 1st XI football team of 1938-39. Frank Ryan, the player who is holding the ball, is currently (26 October 2020) the oldest known member of the Old Bostonian Association. This photo and many more photographs of BGS football teams and teams of BGS “old boys” can be found in the football category of our wiki.
