Peter Jackson

I went to the Blenheim v St Josephs match at Parkside. During that period our school team St Josephs won many finals they won 2 Yorkshire Cups and when going for the their 3rd were beaten in the final 3-0 at the Arthur Thornton ground, Tony Kelly went off in the first 5 minutes with a cut mouth, no subs in those days hence they played the rest of the match with 12 men. The year was 1956.

I played in the team 1950/1 when we had Del Hodgkinson and Barry Charlesworth in the team, awesome.
