The Scheme of Government was the official instrument which contained the clauses and provisions by which each school was administered in those days.

After rendering long and faithful service to Pickwick, he joined Leeward. He later threw in his lot with Central and played for that club until he was 67 years old. 22 Blades and Yearwood, like Wood, went on to play with some distinction for Pickwick and to gain selection to Barbadian teams. Yearwood made his greatest contribution to Barbadian and West Indies cricket as an administrator. 23 The other Lodge School cricket stars of those days, who also played for Barbados, became staunch supporters of Wanderers.
