Peter Bateson, RIP

Recommended Posts

Peter Bateson who played for Batley over 2 spells passed away this last weekend.

 

Born in East Hull, Peter took up rugby league at Southcoates School and played in junior football before being signed by Batley in 1952, making his professional debut in the Boxing Day Derby against Dewsbury that same year.

Bateson went on to make 55 appearances for the West Yorkshire side.

Peter ended his career at Hull in January 1962, as the young Arthur Keegan was emerging as a future test full-back, but returned to Batley for a short time in 1963-64 and 1964-65, making a further 22 appearances in total and adding another 45 successful goal-kicks. He then continued in the game by turning out for BOCM and played in their Challenge Cup-tie against Liverpool City in February 1967.
