Lyn Morgan

IT was standing room only at Oldham Crematorium for the funeral service of former Oldham RL and Oldham RU prop forward Lyn Morgan.

In his earlier life, Welshman Lyn, who was 74, was closely associated with both clubs, as well as Broughton Park RUFC, where he had two separate spells as club president.
He also played for Rochdale Hornets and for clubs in the Oldham Amateur Rugby League.
Oldham RL, Oldham RU, Broughton Park and Oldham RL Players’ Association, of which Lyn was a member until he died, were all represented.
Huddersfield Giants, where his son Paul is on the board, were also in attendance, with many people unable to get into the crematorium and forced to stand outside.
There was a rendering of that famous Welsh hymn, ‘Guide me O Thou Great Redeemer’ and exit music was provided by a recording of Max Boyce’s ‘The Pontypool Front Row’.
