John Henderson, RIP

2 posts in this topic

I have just seen in the League Weekly newspaper that John Henderson died last week, aged 84, and his funeral was today at Huddersfield Crematorium.   John played 106 games for Town between 1950 and 1955 and scored 13 tries usually as a prop forward.   He also played 8 times for Cumberland, 1 game for England and he was selected to tour Australia on the 1954 tour, the first touring team to fly to Australia, taking 4 days.    John, a Maryport lad was transferred to Halifax in January 1955 for a fee of £2,000.   RIP John.

RIP, just read a bit about him and he sounds like he was a hell of a player.
