Gerry Walker I remember back in the late 60`s early seventies a few of us from the YMCA would stay over in the football pavillion and set up early the next morning. Guys like Sandy Nesbitt, Stevie Boyle, John Cushley and a few others. By that time the Haliburtons were running the YMCA along with Jim Craig, who used to work in Craigs the Butchers.
