It was the time that Jim left Widnes for a season to play at Workington Town.

Workington had a home game at Derwent Park, referee for the day was Ronnie Campbell, who came from Widnes.

Because he didnt live too far from Jim he managed to get a lift to the game off the big man.

During a particularly torrid match, he had to warn jim a number of times about his "over zealous" play. Finally, with his patience running out he called Jim over to him and told him he was going to have to
send him off.

Jim said to Ronnie,"have u got any idea of the bus timetables back to Widnes," referee Campbell asked why? Jim reminded Ronnie how he had travelled to the ground.

"Send me off," said Jim "and you are travelling home by bus" (approx.130 miles) Needless to say, Jim was let
off with a stern warning and remained on the field.
