Jeppe High School for Boys

The Barraclough Game

The Barraclough Game

One of Jeppe’s longest standing sporting traditions is the annual Barraclough cricket game which sees the under-14A team play their last game of the season against a team of Jeppe old boys.

Dennis Barraclough was a parent at the school and in 1958 his son was in the, then, under-13 team. He arranged for a team of fathers to play a game against them, and the tradition was born. The team has since morphed into a combination of parents and old boys..

It was played on Friday afternoon, in exactly the spirit it was intended to be.
