Sherborne’s 1st XV celebrated their first unbeaten season in 1906-1907, winning 11 matches out of 11, scoring 24 goals and 41 tries. The fixtures that year included three inter-school games against Llandovery College, St Paul’s and Tonbridge.  On 17 November 1906, the team won a 41-5 victory over St Paul’s (whose captain that year was to become Field Marshal Montgomery), and on 24 November 1906 they recorded their first-ever victory over Tonbridge on their own ground.
