Bobby Greenough :: 1957-1966

First game 14/12/1957   Last game 30/04/1966      Played 229 + 3 Tries 136 Goals 0 Points 408

Bobby Greenough was signed by Warrington in 1957 from Blackbrook amateur club of St Helens.  He made his Warrington debut as a stand-off in a 20-16 win over Salford at Wilderspool.

Over the next six seasons he developed an exciting half-back partnership with Jackie Edwards.  The highlights being the 1959 Lancashire Cup victory over St Helens and reaching the 1961 Championship Final which was lost to Leeds.  Greenough scored 30 tries that season as Warrington finished 2nd in the league.

Whilst he was stand-off for Warrington Bobby was quick enough to play on the wing.  His sole Great Britain cap in the 1960 winning Wold Cup was on the wing against New Zealand.  He was one of three Warrington players in Great Britain’s winning squad.  He also played eight times for Lancashire, scoring seven tries.

Greenough’s speed as a stand-off enabled him to score 136 tries for Warrington in a nine year career at Wilderspool.  He lies 8th on the list of Warrington all-time try scorers and is only one of six players to score 30 tries in a season for Warrington.

Bobby is now living a quiet life, as one of the 120 residents of Eday in the remote North Isles of Orkney.
