A Photo of Dickie Kent


Dick Kent first played for the O.B.s in 1948, when he was at school and thus has played with many of the O.B.s whose names are fast becoming a memory - Bill Jeffery, Peter Jeffery, Roger Bullen, Ray Bradshaw, Gabie Wood, Laurie Lee, and so on. He played for the O.B.s until 1955/6, culminating in that magnificent season when they did not lose a match. He went to Wasps for the 1956/7 season and was first choice at scrum half for many seasons. During his time he had several trials for England was accounted extremely unlucky never to have won a cap.
