TRSC Sportsman’s Dinner

Recommended Posts

The Travellers Rest TOWN Supporters Club are once again holding their annual Sportsman’s Dinner. As usual the event will be held at The Washington Central Hotel, this year on Friday 25th October.

The speakers this year are:

    HENDERSON GILL 

A former professional rugby league footballer, who played for Bradford Northern, Rochdale Hornets, Wigan, and South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NSWRL. He signed for Rochdale for the start of the 1980/81 season, finishing the campaign as leading try scorer with 18 touchdowns.  He was a very quick winger who used his speed to great effect. His elusive and speedy style caught the attention of Wigan, for whom he signed the following season, going on to score a total of 145 tries during his time there, winning the Lancashire Cup twice, The John Player Special Trophy 3 times, the Challenge Cup and League Championship, and also the World Club Challenge against Manley-Warringah Sea Eagles. At International level, Henderson played one game for England and 15 times for Great Britain, scoring 9 tries.
  
                           And
    
PAUL NEWLOVE             

A former professional Rugby League centre who made his debut with Featherstone Rovers in 1988. In 1993 he scored 2 tries in the victory over Workington Town in the Division 2 Premiership Final at Old Trafford, scoring a club record of 48 tries during that season. In all he played 150 games for Featherstone, scoring 122 tries, before he moved to Bradford Northern in 1993, and then St Helens in 1995, where he played 208 games, in a successful 8 year period scoring 134 tries and lifting many trophies, including, Super League 4 times, the Challenge Cup 3 times, and the World Club Challenge in 2001. He also represented Great Britain 20 times, and England 4 times, scoring a total of 14 tries.

As usual the event will be hosted by Howard Nicholson so no doubt one or two of us will be getting some stick!
