RIP Jack .

Was Chief Scout at Hunslet for many years and no doubt steered numerous Oulton Juniors Hunslet's way over the years.

A true Gent who could always be seen at Rugby matches and around Rothwell.

RIP big Jack, I had the pleasure of working with him on the committee at Oulton when he was chairman. He was a gent and had a great sense of humor. Never seemed happier than when he was around the kids. I know my own son George really looked up to him. God bless you Jack and all the family you left behind.
