I grew up with Maurice Whittle. He signed for Blackburn Rovers after leaving school. He then went to Oldham Athletic and ended his career at Wigan Athletic. I think he also went to play in the USA? I've seen a photograph of Maurice and Pele and George Best all sat around a swimming pool in Fl;orida

Good pic Peter, you've put a bit of weight on since then.

Ken Dumican also went on to play for Wigan Athletic. If I remember right ( Not always guaranteed! ) he played on the right wing for the Latics. A very good footballer in my opinion.

Can't help but notice how they look a lot happier than some under 15 nowadays.

Played Football a few times against Billy Ashurst when he played for Ince Parish Church I played for St Mary's Boys Club Lower Ince.He was a very good player.I also played Rugby for Spring View School against Bill who played for Rose Bridge School.What a player class wrote all over him.We were 14 or 15 years old 5 ft tall Bill was 6ft and still growing.When he tackled you it was like being hit by a Steam Train ,but he always said sorry.What a World class Rugby League player he was.enjoyed watching him playing for Wigan.186 games for Wigan .Then he took Australia by storm playing for Penrith.We are both 70 now Bill but still remember playing against you.If you were playing now Bill you would be classed as a Superstar and be earning mega money,not £20 for a win nought for a loss.Anyone wants to read Bill's Book it's called Tries& Prayers ARugby League Journey. Well worth reading.
