Once again this week it is my sad duty to inform you all that we have lost another ex Parksider Frank ‘Shanks’ Watson.

Frank passed away this morning 30th August after a short illness at the age of 93.

He signed on for Hunslet on the 10th September 1940 playing in total 185 games, scored 32 tries and kicked 2 goals.

He was transferred to Leeds RL on the 29th September 1949 for a fee of £1650.00.

We will keep you updated on the funeral arrangements as soon as they are announced.

RIP Frank.
