1961 - My father took me to Station Rd to see Swinton v Wire. The burgeoning Swinton side were too good for Wire. A young Alan Buckley scored 2 or 3 tries and my father correctly predicted "he'll play for Great Britain that lad " . Brian Bevan scored a consolation try for Wire and my father said " I'm glad the old man's got one" but he only expressed such magnanimity after Swinton had won the match !
