Blue Monkey's reminiscences go back a little further than mine, but I remember Albert as a great leader, an old head leading the burgeoning youthful championship sides. I recall Albert guiding the side around the park and he was an excellent exponent of the chip over the top and regather. He also used to kick most of the shorter range goal kicks with Ken Gowers taking the long range kicks.
RIP and many thanks Albert for galvanising our great side. Condolences to his family. Albert's sons memories of his Swinton career are recorded on the excellent Lions Tales website
