The Y Club,Nunn Street. Parr, St Helens
I was The Youth & Community Worker back in the day -  1972
We borrowed an old 30 seater coach and drove to Wembley Stadium, London, to watch the Saints - St Helens Rugby League Team.

We beat Leeds that year !

I drove the old coach & I remember, on the way back to Parr, the engine of the coach 
( which was inside the coach ) 
started smoking and my wife, 
pregnant with our second daughter, 
was sat right next to the burning-up engine.
It was May 1972.
Another Y Club historic moment was when I was driving this old coach through Wales on a Y Club outing.
This was the only time we ever saw a coach just like ours - 
It  was when we came across one in the middle of a field in Wales - used as a Chicken-Run!!!!
