Nice picture of Geoff at the Keighley re-union, anyone remember Geoff playing for us at the Greyhound Stadium?Was a great prop forward who held our pack together for a couple of seasons when we were known as New Hunslet, a very hard player to stop near the line esp when Alan Maskill used to give him a short ball from which Geoff used to get over the line.

Geoff was my hero when he played for the Lawkholmers.....I used to go down to Marley Running Track to watch the team train. One night we decided to get his autograph but the only paper we could find was in the toilet. We presented Geoff with the toilet paper and a pencil stub and asked him to sign it, he did but his words still ring in my ears. "This is how much our fans think of us, they give us shitehouse paper to sign".

Id write to the editor at the League weekly mate, would be great to see Geoff if he came down to the game later today, a wonderful character

I remember the clubs physio (Duncan Ward) down at the Greyhound Stadium telling me he had to use more strapping on Geoff just to hold him together than all the other players in the team.
