Westby, Jack Jack was my form teacher and PE teacher at Warwick Bolam. When I joined the school as a new first year Jack was my first teacher, he was a gentleman and made me feel less daunted at joining the “big school”. He and his assistant Peter Dee when the PE teachers, I only once had Peter take a lesson and he gave me the “Red Hand” for grubby white pumps (trainers in today’s speak). Dee was a little guy and he came across as a bully, but Jack was a gentleman. When I was in the 5th year I took extra tuition at night school were I me two of his sons who where in the same class. Great guys but we did get up to some mischief together.
I’ll never forget Jack and those days at school.
RIP Jack.

Westby, Jack What a Great man Mr. Westby was. He was my PE teacher at Warwick Bolam High School. Always remember him as a true hard-nosed tough but very fair man. He always set a great example to the young men he taught. I remember him fondly pulling a handful of grey chest hair out demonstrating the work ethic and toughness of men of his generation. Just as he kept his cartilage in a jar to show us the sacrafices he had made during his footballing days. Rarely in life we encounter men that leave a lasting impression but Jack Westby was one of those men. RIP
