Ice skating at The Shay in 1963

Recommended Posts

Do we have any folk on this messageboard who took part in the ice skating at The Shay in March 1963, or happen to know of anyone who is still around who did?

Is that where you did your knee Chadders ?

Ha, I had you or @eddie to be first to attempt this "witty" remark. You did not let me down.

I took part, although it was sliding about on my shoes and not on skates. Does this count?

Similar, myself & several mates, it was all quite surreal to say the least. We walked from Ovenden & back.

I would have thought you would have slid down Lee Bank into Town...getting back up might have been a problem though.

I also walked from Ovenden but I only watched other people falling over.  As a kid I used to walk from Ovenden get in at halftime free then walk home again.

We lived up on Furness Drive, so it was always a walk into town to save the bus fare for other things. When Town played away games I used to go to Ovenden Park, where I sold programs and helped guide cars to park. I remember watching one game where one of the Halifax forwards had to come off with blood streaming out of a head wound. The St John's medic cleaned him up and stitched the wound up so he could go back on, with no anesthetic of any type. They were hard buggers some of them.

Best part used to be that we could go in the clubhouse afterwards and once the players had eaten their fill from the buffet they laid on we could fill our boots with the left over sandwiches etc.

Happy days.

How did you get to hear about it? Was it word of mouth or was there something in the Green Final?

Now that is a cracking idea whilst on lockdown.  I've got acrylics and canvases in the cupboard. Cheers.

When I returned to Halifax I lived in Myrtle Drive. Does that mean we were neighbours 

Moved down to Moor Lane from Furness Gardens.
