  • Jim Skipper, Nobel PE teacher, played for Pegasus, which was for former Oxbridge students.

  • Did Pegasus become a well known team?

  • Pegasus were a crack amateur side of the early 1950s, and actually won the FA Amateur Cup twice. They comprised players who were also studying at either Oxford or Cambridge university. I saw Pegasus in both the finals, at Wembley, and still have a programme for one of the games. Hope this information is of interest.
