I am not old enough to remember these player but I saw this and thought the least they deserved was a thread so that if anyone did witness them play or knew them could pass on their respect.
Anyone remember anything about these two? a bit of trivia knowledge in the article as well.

Condolences to the family.

well before my time as well so I too would like to express my condolences to their families.

here is what I have found Harry Burton played in the early 50s scoring 3 tries in 9 apperances in the 51/52 season,
in the 52/53 season he had 26 app 18 goals and 7 tries,
J Bullock name comes in the 55/56 season with 4 app but not scoring, Burton racked up 12 tries that season

both players was listed in the backs

if I can find any more formation I will post it on

RIP to Harry and Johnny two more of our late players
look out for our Legend and Belle Vue Blonde :CHEERS:
