Les Bettinson Cause of death – what happened?

  • Date of death : September , 2021
  • Death Age : 85 -year-old
  • cause of death : unconfirmed

A Cumberland rugby league star, who became a Salford stalwart for over half a century, has died at the age of 85.

Les Bettinson hailed from Millom where he first played rugby for the local union club in his early 20’s.

A classy centre, he attracted the attention of Gus Risman whilst he was leading Workington Town to their glory days, in the early 50s, but never signed for the west Cumbrians.

However, on his appointment as Salford manager, he promptly secured Les’s signature with his debut coming against Batley, on March 9 1957.

Les’s dedication to the club he had joined was exemplified in an outstanding run of 81 consecutive matches, which began at the start of the 1962/3 season and ran right through that, and the following season, to eventually come to a halt at the start of the 1964/5 season.
