Mr Clish was my P.E. Teacher throughout my time at Houghton Comp 1976-81. I played for his School football team and Lambton & Hetton Boys and he was always full of encouragement and advice. I never forgot that. He was one of the good guys.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. Like many before me I was inspired by Tom’s love for sport in general and cricket in particular. So much so that I followed him into the teaching profession and taught P.E. in Hampshire for ten years. I still have fond memories of cricket practice and trying my hardest to bowl him out, while he scattered my best deliveries to the far corners of the field! RIP Tom. You made a difference!
