It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the passing away of Louis Artis on 5/8/2016.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family at this difficult time.

Louis funeral will take place Thursday 25th August at Cottingley Hall Crematorium at 11.00am.

Louis signed on for Hunslet as a 16 year old on the 10/5/1951 (the same day as Geoff Gunney), he made his first team debut at Parkside against Featherstone on the 5/1/1952.

Louis’s professional playing career ended when he lost 4 fingers at John Waddingtons on the guillotine machine.

RIP Louis
