Just heard the sad news of rugby stalwart Geoff Fletcher's death.

I'm sure older fans will remember him.

Yes you are correct whilst he was playing in a match at Fartown Huddersfield Graham Swale an Huddersfield player got in to the visiting teams dressing room & hid Geoffs toupee a full blooded disagreement followed the incident

Sad news indeed.

One the game's great characters.

He must have kept Huyton / Runcorn afloat almost single-handedly in his time.

There'll never be another, that's for sure!!
