Pirates Internationals

It was a great honour early in our history to have three players gain international recognition. Gerald Luke, Jim Matthews & John MacG. K. Kendall-Carpenter, who went on to win a total of 23 England caps, and who also captained his country

John MacG. K. Kendall-Carpenter is pictured in the middle of the picture.
Either side of John are Gerald Luke and Jim Matthews, both later captains of the club, who played for England Schools U15s team.
