A Rugby League Goldmine

Tom Little


“A remarkable story of how a small town and its villages were so important in producing some of the most legendary players in the history of the game” Harry Edgar, Rugby League Journal

From the early days, Joe Ferguson, Jimmy Lomas and Douglas Clark will forever be revered as major figures in the history of the great game that became Rugby League.

‘A Rugby League Goldmine’ explores the extraordinary contribution to the senior game made by many players from in and around Maryport, with insights into their backgrounds and the social history of the time.

There can be few other small regions, with a population of around 15,000 to yield such a rich vein of rugby talent.
