Yes, South Stand Loiner, I will have those books you want. Both are novels set against a strong though quite different rugby league background..

.

"Rugby Football. A United Game" is based on the idea what might have happened if the Northern clubs had been in the majority around the time of the great split in 1895.

"The Glory and The Dream" is a novel set in the early post war period of rationing and shortages about a young lad growing up in South Lancashire wjth a dream to follow his Dad's success playing rugby league. Interestingly Roy Chesters fictional town of Garton is not very far from my fictional town of Ashurst.

Not quite, Parksider. It was Peter Lush who circulated a dozen or so of the old RLCF regulars and so helped organise this event albeit from his home in North London. When the word started to go round , a Keighley fan told me about a possible problem with parking near to the ground. I had a walk round to check, put messages up on the internet and so hopefully made sure that no one finished up paying a parking fine.

On Saturday we will collect the names of all those who might be interested in getting the organisation going again on a more regular basis but I am not sure how early it will be before we can reintroduce the auction.

You will find me and Peter there on the London League Publications table.
