I've already posted this on another platform, but I was really saddened to hear of the passing of former Halifax Town legend Les Massie. He had, of course, made his name with Huddersfield and partnere

I went to Holy Trinity junior school (a long time ago) and the `PE` teacher was Robert Foulkes and he arranged for a school trip to watch Stoke City v Halifax Town. It was my very first ever live Hali

RIP. A club legend. Courier photo below of his promotion-winning goal vs Rochdale 08/05/1969.

I went to Holy Trinity junior school (a long time ago) and the `PE` teacher was Robert Foulkes and he arranged for a school trip to watch Stoke City v Halifax Town. It was my very first ever live Halifax Town game and from my first look at a proper football club, I was hooked. Then when Les Massie scored at our end I was doubly hooked. It was worse than heroin (I think???) and I have been addicted to Halifax Town FC ever since

Damn you, Les Massie. You were my first town hero and you will be sadly missed. RIP

I to went to that game on a bus trip organised by what was then the Halifax Technical High School, which my older brother went to, I would have been 12. What a day out, Les Massie scoring past the legendary Gordan Banks. Like you I was hooked.

RIP Les, and thanks for the memories.
