1964: Roy Gilchrist signs..

Sent in by John Davies, a cutting from the Burnley Express in 1964 as Roy Gilchrist signs as professional. Jack Hayes and Burnley FC legend Bob Lord looking on in the background.

Roy Gilchrist is still the only person to take all 10 wickets for Lowerhouse in a Lancashire League match versus Ramsbottom (scorecard here). He also managed the same feat for Bacup 2 years prior.
