BILLY ADAMS 29/10/53, Billy was the last Hunslet player to kick a goal at Parkside, only another 4 years to retirement Billy.

Last but not least mi old buddy KEN HEPPLES 29/10/46. Just a couple of years older than me then Ken. smiley

I OMB told me that when Alan Bancroft made his debut for Hunslet he scored a try in the opening minutes, then soon afterwards he was sent off the field of play and that’s how he got the name ‘Basher Bancroft’

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL OF YOU smiley
