It is deep regret that I report the death yesterday in Spain of my old neighbour and friend Stan Walmsley who played for Leigh in the early seventies

Remember watching him as a kid. RIP Stan.
I watch every game on DVD (thanks Fred) but it will never beat being behind the sticks.

Stan was very often in the Legends Bar, prior to our games in recent seasons and, I thought he always looked well!
Unfortunately Stan wasn't blessed with pace however, he always put a good shift in!
An amusing incident that made the national Press involved Stan at a Training session on the old 'A' team pitch on Kirkhall Lane (B&Q is sited there now) when he ran into a brick Wall and injured his face! needless to say Stan was highly embarrassed by his picture in the National Press :oops:
Stan made his debut in August 1961!
RIP Stan a good Servant to LRFC.

I remember Stan and his good wife Betty when they ran The Colilers pub. He used to live and breathe all things Rugby League. I enjoyed many a gill with him discussing Leigh RLFC particular, which as people who know me will verify is just up my street. My favourite topic in the world.

A Gentleman. RIP Stan.
