Grey High School Celebrate Their Centenary

The Grey Institute fielded one of the first cricket teams in Port Elizabeth. But, because Founder's Day was in June, it was a rugby match that was used to celebrate the occasion on June 2, 1956 at the Crusader Ground, another name by which the field at St George's Park was known.
