Amongst those in attendance at the event, compered by former ‘singing ref' John Kendrew, were quest of honor Neil Fox - formerly of Wakefield and GB - and legendary 1960/70's half back pairing, equally feared and respected in the game at that time to the extent they were dubbed ‘H Bombs' - Keith Hepworth (Scrum Half) and Alan Hardisty (Stand Off).
Hardisty, still the record try scorer in the club's history and now Chairman of the Ex Players Association, addressed the audience before the meal took place and spoke of his delight by the attendance of long-time friend Hepworth with whom he starred alongside for his junior school before winning the Yorkshire Schools Championship at Ashton Rd in 1955.The pair then famously starred in Castleford's winning floodlight trophy and consecutive Challenge Cup winning sides of 1969-70 whilst also being regulars for representative honors with Hardisty, who debuted for Cas' aged 17, captaining both Yorkshire and GB.

Alan Hardisty
Some consider Alan as the greatest Cas player ever.Wembley Captain in 1969 and 70, Alan provided the flair that complimented his half back partner Keith Hepworth so well.
Keith was a dynamic non-stop all action player who always gave his all and combined with Alan Hardisty to form one of the most feared half-back combinations in World Rugby League.
