Town Glory Days

4 posts in this topic

I wonder if anyone could help me solve a mystery. I collect and research rugby medals and have bought two Town medals which were sold at auction in Scotland. They are a Rugby League Challenge Cup Final runners up medal for season 1954-55 and a Rugby League Championship Final runners up medal for season 1957-58. The Rugby League have engraved the medals for each competition, but neither the club nor the individual have added their names to the medals. The Rugby Football League were very strict in how many medals they issued which were usually 13 plus 2 for the Secretary and Chairman. 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions as to who may have played in these two losing finals three seasons apart, but for what ever reason did not play in the 1957-58 losing Rugby League Challenge Cup Final team.

 

Any thoughts welcome.

Can I say from the start that Keith T is probably the expert on historical rugby league knowledge, but I will try to help.

The game took place on April 30th 1955 and Barrow beat Town by 21points to 12. The Team:

1 Vickers 2 Southward 3 Paskins 4 Gibson 5 Faulder 6 Wookey 7 Roper 8 Hayton 9 Lymer 10 Key 11 Edgar 12 Mudge 13 Ivison

1958:

Key played in the Challenge Cup Final but not in the Championship Final

Wookey did the same

Faulder played in the Championship Final but not the Challenge Cup Final

Stamper did the same

Thus, I would suggest the answer to your question is Ken Faulder.

I can't do better than that Supporter.    It would seem that Ken Faulder is the obvious choice from the information available.

Gentleman I am really appreciative for you both taking the time and trouble to answer my query. Thanks to Supporter for giving me the benefit of your logic so that I can see how you have arrived at Ken Faulder as the probable recipient.

Thanks once again for the info and I will when time allows follow Ken Faulder's rugby league career.
