According to the magazine, the College scored 209 for 3 declared (Dexter 103 not out, Townsend 50). The Masters scored 108.

"I and Neil Dexter opened bat. I made 80-something not out, I don't recall Neil making over 100; I think it was 50-something and if there was a third at bat if Neil was dismissed is something I cannot recall.  I do remember our housemaster Jack Hawkyard (God rest) was extremely P***** O** because he was playing wicket keeper and missed stumping me early in the game.  I also remember blasting a straight six off Stan Montgomery who was a former county player helping with the coaching so he was allowed to play on the staff team."

Robin Jackson

An update from Robin Jackson:

"The next year, 1964, Neil indeed made the 100+ (as reported in the college mag). I would have enjoyed being a spectator, however 63 was my last year at the College."
