Louis Shepherd - 1956 to 1969

Louis played 13 seasons for Haven, making 172 appearances in all and finished within one point of scoring 100 points in his career.

Complete Record
Appearances 172
Goals Nil
Tries 33
Points 99

He made his debut at the latter end of the 1956/57 season on March 16th 1957 away to Oldham in a 25 points to 5 defeat. The team that day was;
JJ McKeown, Ron Mullinder, Ron Morgan, John Tembey, Louis Shepherd, Syd Lowden, Jackie Reid,
Bill McAlone, Jack McKinnell, George Killen, Steve McCourt, Tom Short and Tom Stamper.

His final game was away to Salford on 20th September early in the 1968/69 season, again loosing by 18 points to 7. The team that day was;
Peter Donnelly, Barry Buchanan, John Shimmings, Louis Shepherd, Billy Ennis, John Bailey, Ron Barnes, Alf Mumberson, Tom Hill, Keith Irving, Eddie Bowman, Mick McFarlane and Tom Pullin.

How many players do you think would get into Havens current team?

Louis now lives in Melbourne and my informant met him for a beer whilst in Aus a few years ago.
