RL Record Keepers Club & RL Collectors Federation

11 November 2014 - 06:19 PM

The Record Keepers teams & scorers sheets produced by Irving Saxton & his team were being held by the Rugby League Collectors Federation.

I've been trying to get hold of a couple of sheets for Hunslet's matches in the second world war but my emails are going unanswered.

I was wondering if anyone has any idea if the Federation is still going or if they know where the sheets are now if it's stopped operating.

Help with Hunslet Teams please

Back in 70's a chap called Irving Saxton started the RL Record Keepers Club with the aim of documenting the result, teams & scorers for every professional match played in the UK since 1895. I have the sheets for the Hunslet games and have transferred these to excel spreadsheets which I'm sending to the club to hopefully add to their website.

The project ended with season 1993/94.

I've also got the Rothmans & Gillette yearbooks so have been able to bring the records up to date.

However there are 2 considerable gaps. The first is 1943/44 & 1944/45 for which I've never been able to source the sheets.

The second is 1994/95 & 1995/96 for which I haven't yet got the teams.

If anyone has any details of dates/results/teams/scorers involving Hunslet for the 2 war years or any teams for the 2 later years you would be willing to share it would be greatly appreciated.

Any info can posted on here or emailed to bigmart56@gmail.com

Many Thanks
