Was a very wise Domino player as well, played against him a couple of times and usually there was a few shillings at stake. RIP Big Fella

I lived opposite him (his wifes house) in Platt Bridge.
I think they had seperated but I wemt in their house and she had his medals in a glass cabinet. I think he had caps for Lancs as well

I think he scored a hat trick in that 1966 final. Almost unheard of for a Prop Forward in those days.

Albert wasn't a prop, he was a second row forward, wore the number 11 shirt and was probably the fastest forward of his time, he was as quick if not quicker than a lot of backs.
God bless Albert, thanks for the memories. xxx
