Biography

Bill Quash played at left-half for Upton Park at the 1900 Olympics. He had previously won an Essex Senior Cup with Barking Woodville and was their assistant secretary in 1897. He was a regular first-team player with Upton Park at the turn of the century, and being an all-round sportsman, Quash also excelled at cycling, swimming, figure skating and cricket and is believed to have been one of the founder members of Barking Cricket Club in 1901. A former shipbroker’s clerk, he later became a contracts clerk for the Post Office. He joined the London Scotish Rifle Volunters in 1894.
