Springfield won the Wigan 7's 2 years in a row 1980 & 81
Also won the Millom 7's in 1980 the only club outside of Cumbria to do so at the time.
I agree with you Jimmy on us winning the Millom 7's and Wigan 7's in 1980. Not so sure about us winning the Wigan sevens in 1981 though. I could be wrong. The Millom and Wigan 7's in 1981 clashed as they were played on the same day so we had to split our squad between Millom and Wigan. I pulled a short straw and was despatched to Millom to defend our prized trophy but alas we came home empty handed!
Ken Halliwell was my grandad does anyone know where i can find more pictures of him?
is that jeff barker on the front row?,wasn't he the good looking one on the springfield team?
no the lad on the left of barker is the good lookin one.
is he married ? i know barker i saw him last week up wigan, he looks about 20 stone
on the left,isn't that Terry Parkinson,i think he wedd a wench from up hindley way
no that's not me i'd signed for hull kr by then.Best move i ever made .this was the only cup this lot ever won, better boozers than rugby players. if they had half as much dedication as me and joe mac they could have held their heads high but it was not to be. i see most of them go in the star wars bar at dinner time during the week, nearly called in the other week but our wilma would'nt let me.
Terry Parkinson married a Fred Flintstone look alike
Im not guilty of that last comment Terry. Ive a good idea who is though!
how did joe lock get in a 7s team slowest mon on the springfield team
