My first game was Workington Town vs Leeds in 1978.
I think the match finished in a 9-9 draw, and there was a horrific injury to one of the Town players( think he was called Mick? Burke).
The poor guy's career was finished and he ended up paralysed.
John Burke, signed for town from Wigan, lives ( or did) quite close to me, still confined to a wheelchair, John still always seemed to have a smile on his face, and i remember seeing him at a few Leigh past players dinners with Mick Stacey.
