Where are you now Steve?
Graham Wood, I also played at that time. We actually played together against Oldham about 1968 - Graham Mckay certainly played, & Colin Smith played for Oldham having transferred from Swinton - he was probably your opposing hooker!
Tell your friends at Rsa you are not lying!!!
Just letting everyone know who knew my Dad Dr W Kerns OBE that he sadly past away 2 days ago. He was an incredible man who loved Swinton as much, maybe even more than anyone.
He was Chairman for many years, was much adored by his wife and four children, we shall miss him greatly. It may be a slightly biased opinion but we considered him a truly extraordinary man. He had a great sense of humour, super intelligent and a great Dad.
God Bless Dad you have touched so many lives.
Richard Kerns, my Mum, Pete, Sue and John a huge hole in our lives.
Excellent coverage of an age gone bye, and a great selection of interviews. Bobby Fleet & Dr Kerns, it was so nice to listen to you both - Captain & Chairman, two extraordinary examples for those that follow.
Best wishes to all of you with a Lions background, from all here in Chicago - Go Bears! Let Alex Murphy know that he completely underestimated us that day in November 1969.
Best Regards, Peter Kenny
hi, i must take my hat off to you, for putting this site together, brings back so many memories, i also was a ball boy, along with brian sutton and paul kershaw, we used to get paid 5 shillings and thought it was great, i will always remember getting in that big stone bath on a winters afternoon in the 70s, thats after the players had been in, and it used to be full of dirt and grit, and we would sit and have left over cheese and onion sandwiches, although georgie jones used to nick his fair share, in our school holidays, our wages were increased by 10 shillings, when we would help norman siddal keep the ground in fine shape.
