Heard one of the Trinity greats from the 60s died this morning.
Sad news

Malcolm was one of the most pleasant fella's you could wish to meet off the field. He always had time for a chat and a great sense of humour.
We had the honour of having lunch with him, only a month ago and he spent the time showing us photos, memorabilia and telling us stories.
From a playing point of view, he played 98 first team games for Trinity and it would have been a lot more but for a broken arm he suffered in a car accident which robbed him of almost three years. He made his debut in November 1959 in a 31-6 home win against Huddersfield with the likes of Fox, Turner and Vines by his side. He was a young 19 year old 'bull' of a prop. Three weeks later he was facing the might of the 1959 Kangaroos at Belle Vue, Provan, Rassmussen and the rest. He kept his no.10 shirt throughout the 1959-60 cup run playing in all four rounds at St.Helens, Widnes and Whitehaven and the Featherstone semi final.
His injury robbed him of Wembley Cup glory and there was also 'rumblings' that he was being looked at for the 1960 World Cup squad. Then followed almost three years of hard work as his arm was slow to heal. He made his comeback at Widnes in early 1963 just in time for the cup run and his greatest memory was taking the field at Wembley and scoring his great try. His tussle with Wigan's international prop, Brian McTigue was legendary.
The last story he told us was that he tells everyone he scored the winning try that day, despite Trinity going into scoring 3 more in a 25-10 win. If anyone questions him, he says take it up with Derek Turner as he told him, 'that's the winning try, Young Sammy' as they left the field.
Malcolm left Trinity in 1966, moving to Bramley but his legacy is the 1963 Wembley try .... and to this day he is the only Trinity forward to score a try at Wembley

Great fellow.
Great player.
Those 3 years out surely robbed him of GB honours.

On an equally sad note, "Black Joe" the famous Outwood window cleaner also passed away this week.
RIP Joe; a lucrative Christmas morning window cleaning slot has just appeared for any aspiring window cleaning magnates.
