Having first visited Old Trafford in the 50s to watch the Busby Babes and then many times since to watch the Grand Finals, what a marvellous occasion it was to watch our lads in that stadium - the legendary Les Holliday, Joe Grima, Derek Bate etc etc put on a great performance in what was a format I think the RFL should have tried to continue - our day in the sun.

A reminder that the Premiership Finals day was already a successful end of season jamboree before the "powers that be" started to mess things around. Firstly by deciding they had to copy the Aussies (again!) with the rather baffling play-off fixture formula, then by crowning the winners as "Champions" - a title that should always belong to the side finishing top of the league in my view.
As for "Club Call" - Tony Smith's got the right idea on that!!!

Ainsworth had a fabulous game.
And yes it threw it down all day it was horrendous.

Following Sundays game at York I will be off to Cornwall for a couple of weeks
Off to Cornwall (Penzance) myself next week, for a long weekend for my 50th.
Don't remember a day in the sun think it rained!
It chucked it down for most of the day, I drove from my home in Weaste to Trafford Road & parked near the old Job Centre, then I left the North-west after the game.
I started doing agency, the first job was 8 weeks at the Lister in Stevenage, as I drove down the M6 I passed Coventry, as the Coventry City FA Cup winners were parading below, apparently.
After that, I only had 3 weeks work in the NW, one in 1997, and a week during the Commonwealth games at Christies
