Biography:

A few months after starting as headmaster at Brigg Grammar School, Flowers persuaded the Governors to allow the field to be prepared for cricket. He also persuaded the Governors to plant trees around the School field.

Flowers was a keen cricketer: in 1892 he was presented by the Brigg Cricket Club with a bat as the player with the best batting average. And he was a wicket keeper of more than average ability. He was also a man who liked a day's hunting. Old Boys speak of him appearing in School on Saturday morning dressed for the hunt. From "The History of Brigg Grammar School" by F. Henthorn (1959)
