Hi Jim

 

I was at Grange Park 1961-68 and played rugby with those you mentioned in your post.

 

The 'other' Jimmy Woodward went to Grange Park as well 1957-62. he lived in Gladstone Street. I recall the name Sam Woodward from my street, Doulton Street.

Of course I recall Cissy Cauldwell and her sons Linden and David. My uncle Frank (Dooley) used to have the Illegal bookmakers at the back of the house next to Jean's chippy and opposite my grandmothers shop. Betting shops became legal in 1961 which took a bit of the devilment out of the process. All the punters had psuedonyms in case their slips were intercpted by the law Red Roger, V et sl.
