  1. Nice guy with a lovely sense of humour, you will be missed. condolances to the family. RIP George.
  2. I believe Gus turned John McKeown down.
  3. No, Broughton Rangers was my first professional game. I attended Haven's first game also. Jack Kitchen the great Bradford Northern centre became their first coach.
  4. I was a that very first game with two 15 year old Seaton pals. Both sadly passed away many years ago. The names that I remember from that team are Bill ASkew, Hedley Rogers, George Armstrong ( scored the first try), Jepson who later partnered Albert Pepperell ( two clever half backs, became Peppy and Jeppy), Irving ( I believe 'Tint' ), big Denis Cavaanagh (Kicked the first goal). We had a McGilray, an Ausie who joined later, I'm not sure it was the same one. He had a hell of a long distance kick.
  5. Feel that the answer to the financial problem of rugby league is the type of rugby played. Cut out all the negative rugby and reintroduce fast flowing open exciting rugby league. Supporters like to see trys scored not boring five tackles and a kick.
  6. What about players that won the league champonship and went to Wembley three times?
  7. Thanks will pay on Sunday. Who to?
  8. Put me down for 2. Arnold Ainsworth

    Away shirt

    As a 15 year old was at that very first game with two Seaton pals. The only thing I remember was George Armstrong scoring the first try and Denis Cavanagh kicking the first goal. I would like to know that team that day. Reference to the Tangerine shirt, it was all tangerine. I seem to think it was used as the way shirt. I believe it was worn the first time on Gus Risman's home game for Town on his return from the 1945 'Indomitables' test matches in Oz along with prop Fred Hughes.
  10. I recall in the 1940,s, Cumberbatch playing for Barrow followed by Roy Francis playing for Barrow.
