Vic Sellers Day, 27 June 2004
On a sunny Sunday, Stanley Rangers ARLFC and Stanley Falcons Cricket Club celebrated the life of one of its great friends and helpers, Vic Sellers. This day was arranged to enjoy all the activities that Vic enjoyed and so there was a rugby match, a cricket match and a darts and dominoes competition. Trophies were generously donated by Cups 'n' Shields of Castleford and were competed for in the friendly spirit that both clubs are proud of.
Stanley Falcons C.C. were the winners of the cricket match between themselves and Stanley Rangers ARLFC and captain James Scargill accepted the trophy from Vic's son Paul. Stanley Rangers came out winners in a keenly-fought rugby match, ably refereed by Wayne "it's in the long grass" Grice. Captain Paul Hughes received the trophy on behalf of the team. In the Darts and Dominoes competition, the Butchers Arms team took on a Stanley team and the final result was a win for Stanley, with team captain Steve Bown accepting the trophy.
A barbeque was provided and with the sun keeping out threatening clouds, a successful day was enjoyed by all. A bench and a clock have been donated to the club in memory of Vic and in the clubhouse a photo of Vic and his umpire's cap have been framed and hung in the lounge. The club and family would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this such a successful day.
