*Black & white edition* In August 1979 I went to my first rugby league match - the Yorkshire Cup Final between Halifax and Leeds.
And so began 10 years of following Halifax RLFC, watching the highs and lows of yo-yo between the first and second divisions before the Australian-inspired revolution of 1984 saw a period of remarkable success.
'Up, Up....and Under' is a 63 page black and white collection of programmes, magazines and photos collected during this period, complete with teams, scores and comments and will be of special interest to Halifax fans past and present as well as those with a love of the game and its history.
Originally from Halifax, West Yorkshire, I went to the Crossley Heath School before gaining a BA from Reading University and a BSc from Teesside University. I currently work in the UAE.
