Dad returns a happy man!
After the disappointment of losing Super League status, the 2002 season in the Northern Ford Premiership is one of my greatest Rugby Memories.
My memory is winning 13-2 at St Helens in the cup in march 1962.
My greatest memory for Huddersfield Giants was winning the play off game at Warrington in 2010 by scoring a 90metre interception in the final moments of the game.

One my best huddersfield giants memories is making my debut against Warrington Wolves back in 2007 as a 17 year old and beating them!
My greatest memory of my time with the Huddersfield Giants, was captaining the side to its first Challenge Cup final in over 40 years.
In 1947 my dear Dad, recently demobbed from the Army, took me along to my first match at Fartown.
It’s not necessarily the flashes of brilliance that stick in your mind but the things that go wrong.
He never really mentioned that he was a rugby player. It was my father who told me he was the great Douglas Clark.
My greatest memory for both the Giants and the Bulls would be walking out wearing the clubs colours in the Challenge Cup final.
I remember the first really big match I saw at Fartown. It was the first time they’d played on a Sunday and they weren’t allowed to charge to get in
Our best supporter at one time was a dog sitting on the terrace, it was always there.

"There used to be huge queues of trolleybuses in St George’s Square just ferrying people to the match and back."
Bizarrely my introduction to rugby league came when I was nineteen and about to be appointed chief photographer on the Oriana, one of the largest cruise ships in the world.
