LAST month in Yester Years, we asked for help in identifying these junior players at Crosfields.

The image, above, was from the late 1980s and was taken at the club’s base on Hood Lane in Great Sankey.

Quite a few of you got in touch and many spotted a number of players who went on to have successful careers - including one who would become a Challenge Cup winner.

The back row is the under 16s side and it was before the team headed for a tour of Scarborough and Blackpool.
From left are; Barry Shaw (physio), Alan Wilkinson (assistant coach); Andy Haigh (ex-St Helens who won the Challenge Cup in 1997), Carl Porter (ex-Warrington Academy and Crosfields first team captain); Dennis Unsworth (still on current committee), Ian Waugh (team administrator), Peter Cannon (ex-St Helens and Swinton and Crosfields first team captain), Nicky Shaw (ex-Warrington Academy), Stephen Buckley, Darren Shaw, Peter Cannon snr (coach, ex-Warrington second row)
