Ex Hunslet player Dennis Tate dies

We are sad to announce that Dennis Tate (85) passed away on Tuesday morning (2 April 2019) in his sleep at Wheatfield Hospice.

Dennis was born in Hunslet and played for Hunslet Juniors before getting into the first team where he played over 100 matches before being transferred to Bradford Northern.

Dennis was on the front cover of the Parksider Programme for a number of seasons going over for a try.

Dennis was married to Gladys for over 60 years and leaves a daughter Julie, a son Mathew and five grandchildren.

Dennis will be missed by all that knew him.
