George Formby
Started by: rnicky74 (1295)   Report abuse
I have in my possession a large framed photograph of George Formby with Wigan rugby team and the challenge cup from sometime in the 30's i think. Was wondering if anyone knew of anybody who may want to buy it as it is too big for my house.

Any chance of putting a photo of it on the site?
How much are you asking for it?

hi thanks for your replies, i'm going to post a picture of it just as soon as i get chance. i was thinking of asking the jjb if they would be interseted in displaying it as my dad thinks that Lance Todd is in the picture, maybe someone can help me with who the rugby players are when i put it on here. Also pictured is Mrs Formby and i've been told it was very rare for her to be photographed.

A very old thread I know.

Does anyone know if the photo was put on Wigan World or what happened to it? I don't think I have ever seen GF with a Wigan RL team. Thanks.

Is this the photo mentioned in the opening post though? Looks a lot later than the thirties with players from the 50's and 60's as in Ernie Ashcroft. Thanks for this though Lectriclegs I haven't seen this before either.
