Rugby Legend Lends a Hand

We met record breaking rugby hero Neil Fox today to look through some of the objects he has amassed during his decorated and much celebrated career with Wakefield Trinity. Neil, originally from Sharlston and whose two brothers Peter and Don were also Trinity players,  played in the legendary team which won League, Challenge and Yorkshire cup finals throughout the 1960s. Over a career that spanned three decades he scored 6,220 points, more than any other player. He also played and toured with Yorkshire, England and Great Britain.

Neil is very kindly lending some of his hard won medals, his Lance Todd trophy and International caps. These items will help us create a rugby display which will celebrate Trinity’s 1960s golden age.
