FIVE legends were inaugurated into the York RL Hall of Fame at the annual sporting dinner on Saturday - including one still heavily involved in York City Knights and a player from over a century ago with family links to York City.

The event, organised by the Knights Independent Supporters' Society (KISS), was held at New Earswick Bowls Club, and saw former international referee Ronnie Campbell attend as guest speaker and make presentations to the quintet.

The five are:

* Peter Foster, who played for York from April 19, 1555, to April 5, 1967, making 338 appearances and scoring 169 tries

* Mick Ramsden, who had two spells at the old York club either side of a brief stint at Wakefield, offered to play for free during the Wasps' financial struggles and, after they folded, came out of retirement to play three more years for the current Knights club. He has remained on the backroom staff in the ten years since hanging up his boots in 2005. In total he played 217 times for his home-town club, scoring 38 tries, two goals and a drop-goal, between August 25, 1991 and March 17, 2002, and, for the Knights, from January 19, 2003 to September 9, 2005

* Danny Sheehan, who made 384 appearances between March 19, 1962 and 14 April, 1975, scoring 89 tries and one goal

* Dave Dunkerley, who played 208 times between March 9, 1975 and May 13, 1984, scoring 12 tries

* The late Thomas 'Tot' Moore, who made his debut on October 12, 1901, versus Wakefield Trinity at Clarence Street, and went on to play 287 times for the club until 1914, scoring 15 tries and 34 goals. In between times, Moore also had a spell in Australia, returning in 1913 after an appeal was made in this newspaper to find someone willing to pay £5 to bring him back home. Reportedly, the then York supporters' club helped to pay the money. It was also reported in the Australian Press at the time that Moore was "the smartest full-back in all Australia".

Moore was represented at the dinner by his son Alexander, granddaughters Catherine and Carol, and great nephew Jason McGill, the York City chairman.

The quintet join 12 players previously inaugurated into the Hall of Fame - Willie Hargraves, Geoff Hunter, Charlie Taylor, Geoff Pryce, Kevin Harkin, Gary Smith, Rich Hayes, Vic Yorke, Norman Fender, Baz Watts, Edgar Dawson and Graham Steadman.

KISS are hopeful the York RL Hall of Fame will be a focal point in the new community stadium.
