Hi All,

Only another
ten months till Christmas.smiley

Eight ex
Parksiders have their birthdays in February so I’ve decided to spread it out over
the month and wish them a happy birthday two at a time.

The first
two are Brian Culley and George Gomersall both were born under the Zodiac sign
of Aquarius. Apparently they are ‘lovers of things that are unusual’

was born on the 11th February 1937.

Brian was an
outstanding second row forward signing professional forms for Hunslet RLFC in
1955 for the massive sum of £25.00 he finished his playing career for Hunslet
around 1960.
He was
called up to do his National Service and had the honour to represent the Combined
Services R.L. team playing alongside the likes of Ken Gowers, Derek Hallas,
Mick Sullivan, Ike Southwood & Jim Challinor.

Brian is a
regular attender at the annual Hunslet ex Parkside Players reunion lunch and as
only missed out on one since its formation in 1973.

GOMERSALL was born on the 11th February 1939. You are now an
Octogenarian (that means your 80 George)

George was a
junior international at U-19 level he signed professional for Hunslet RLFC in
September 1958 receiving a fee of £250.00 he made his 1st Team debut
at Parkside against Batley RLFC on the 26th September 1959.

On the 4th
April 1963 George was transferred to Bradford Northern for a fee of £500.00
