That team proves the argument that both haven and town need some travelling players. As the majority of that successful team is now back in the amateur game.

Add to that Bewsher and Palmer and it shows current day amateurs more drop out that see it through to first team regulars....so on that we have a few good locals in so lets beef the squad with some top signings

you could pick the best 17 amateurs in cumbria and they would get relegated from the champ and would probably be mid table in champ 1 thats why we,ll always need a few travellers

Talk about where are they now. what about those lads I watched back in 1956 against the Aussies. It was in the express this week and unless i missed it not a mention on our site. Of course they got it a bit wrong as they had the captain as Syd lowden who as we all know followed the money. The captain as far as I could remember was Billy Garrett.
I only wish in years to come we had some players like we had then like oh I don't need to spell it out Billy Banks was the only foreigner and he was only there to cover the loss of that superb scrum half Tommy Keen. I was there both for Tommys' injury and the game itself. Can remember not a lot but a guy called Ray Bull was really nice to me.
