Re: O/T(ish): Sale FC 2018/2019 Fixtures announced

Not that I have heard so far.

Interesting games will be when we meet Ampthill - the legendary Paul Turner is their coach!

For those who do not know Paul, Sale FC would not have reached the heights of "Club" rugby in the period prior to professionalism, which led to the formation of Sale Sharks in the Premiership, without Paul. He almost single-handedly turned round a failing club, on the field, and made us great again. He wasn't universally popular as a person and was often described as "mercurial" but as a player he was innovative and inspirational.

As a slight digression, Sale FC wouldn't exist without Jin Birtles either - he single-handedly kept the Club going during the Second World War. Without his efforts we would have ceased to exist.

I think that they both deserve Honourable mentions in the SS Hall of Fame!
