I've been trying to track him down myself as I'm in the middle of updating club stats from 1989. Nobody at the club has any information about him. I had an address for him back in the 80s but suspect it's out of date.

If it helps, I've updated all the Wikipedia pages for the Bulls from the 1996 season onwards and I'd go as far as saying all those years are very accurate for tries, goals, attendances, players, squad numbers etc.

Ok for SL stats but not pre SL.

For instance the Mumby stats for Bradford are way out. They should read as follows:

580 Appearances.
8 Substitute appearances.
84 Tries
779 Goals
0 Drop Goals
1828 Points.

Where do you get all your data from pal? Was thinking about updating some of the player stats on Wikipedia but need a source.

I use the definitive source - Bradford Northern - The History 1863-1989 by Nigel Williams. Nigel was the "guru" of the stats and the official club statistician for years. Unfortunately nobody at the club seems to know where he is now. We have his book which has stats on everything for that period.

I'm trying to get that down electronically and am working on adding stats the period where he left off until now and ongoing. It'd be good to get stuff on wikipedia updated for our players. I can provide the stats if you can be bothered updating them?
