PASSING OF STANLEY STALWART

30.07.14

Stanley Rangers were saddened by the news that Geoff Bateman, a captain and treasurer of Stanley Rangers in the 1950s and early 1960s had recently passed away. Geoff's son, Andy, recalled his father's loyalty to the club with the following story:

"In 1962 the Yorkshire Amateur Rugby League Commission took the unprecedented step of rearranging a Yorkshire Cup semi-final which clashed with his wedding. My dad told the Evening News paper before the fixture was rearranged that "whatever happens I shall be turning out for the team".  Geoff skippered the team to a 6-0 victory against Hunslet."

On the website History page Geoff Bateman features in two photographs taken of Stanley Rangers in the 1960s. Not only is he featured in the team photo but also in the photo published in the Wakefield Express showing the sets of brothers playing for Stanley Rangers. Five sets of brothers played for Stanley Rangers in the 1960s under coach Laurie Gant. They were Dave and Steve Way, Les and Brian Starkey, Geoff and Ronnie Bateman, Alan and Kenny Baker and Vic and Terry Sellers.

The club sends their sympathy to Andy and all the family of Geoff at this sad time.
