No surprise here, no doubt there are some “bottoms” jingling” at SDC, Oh! How I would like to be fly on the wall in the back rooms of SDC.
I remember Russell Tilson at Tonbridge School. He paid out £100k+ to students on an early 90’s study break when a Grand National bet when spectacularly wrong. An ‘interesting’ chap our Russell.
