In the 1957/58 season Brian played in the Lazenby Cup. Being a so-called friendly it’s not recognised as a first team appearances by the RFL or the record keepers club. To all of ex Parksider’s who played in a Lazenby cup game did you realise that it was a friendly? I certainly didn’t.

Happy 84th birthday Brian have a great day.

A very Happy birthday John. I know you don’t want reminding but you’re 81 today (it’s only a number). John was born in Hafodyrynys on the 17/09/1940. Sign for Hunslet on 20th March 1959. He played 146 first team games making his debut for Hunslet at Parkside against Bradford Northern on the 28th March 1959. In total he crossed the white wash 111 times it would have been 112 if the blind touch judge had not waved his flag at Wembley. Have a great birthday John. Best Wishes from all the Hunslet ex Parksiders
