Billy Patterson RIP
The sincere condolences of everyone at the Oldham Rugby League Heritage Trust are extended to the family of former Roughyeds winger Billy Patterson, who has died at his home in Bredbury.
Billy played 72 senior games for Oldham between 1960 and 1965, mostly on the wing but occasionally at full-back.
Oldham-born, Billy will be remembered fondly by older supporters as a brave-hearted player who never let his lack of weight stop him from giving 100% effort in the Roughyeds’ cause.
He scored 29 tries and kicked 12 goals for a total of 111 points.
