This evening for Fartowners long gone if we win LLS, there must be a few of us who remember someone who only knew mostly bad times in their years following our beloved team and won't be with us in our hour of glory.

Been thinking all morning of my dear Uncle Bernard who got me hooked on Fartown, taking me to my first game in 1959, and Dad who took me to many away games in the 6o's. All 3 of us were at Wembley in 1962 and both of them were brilliant with a broken hearted 9 year old having lost to Wakefield 12-6, they made sure we were all at Odsal the week after to see a famous 14-5 victory over Wakefield to win the Championship final.

So hopefully at around 8 O,clock this evening, I can say thanks for everything and this is for you

Been four generations of my family supporting Fartown. My grandad had some great stories about teams of old. He would have loved to see this current crop.

'62, was my first season watching Fartown. Like Yorkieboy I was at Wembley and at Odsal. Since then we've had to endure some bad seasons. At one time absolute bottom of the league. But, there were some good times too. Winning the Div2 title back in the 70's. Promotion back to SL on the backs of an unbeaten season. Beating Salford in the cup in the mid 70's (my mate was a Salford fan). But this is special. Now to win the final.
