Geoff Munro

Profile

Local born, Geoff Munro worked his way up through the club “B” team, playing initially in the second row. He would eventually convert to the back division playing centre and stand off, but is best remembered as a winger.

Throughout the 1970’s Geoff was switched from one position to another until an extended run on the flank proved that this was his best spot. A strong forceful runner, he topped the clubs try scorers in 1979-80 with 29, which was the best total in the whole of the second division and only one behind the two players (Keith Fielding of Salford and Steve Hubbard of Hull K.R.) who were the joint top in the first division.

In the following year, Geoff was again the Oldham top try scorer registering 14 before an ankle injury cut short his season. He was back for the 1981-82 campaign helping the club to the second division title with 13 tries.

When Geoff finished in the senior side he assisted the club for many years in the “A” team and at the time of writing is still involved in the amateur game locally, having turned out in 1997 for Watersheddings Wanderers.
