    So sad to hear about this, RIP. I'm pretty sure he was the Grandad of Tyrone (Alan Halsall) from corrie.

    Don't want to be picky, but it was at Station Road.
    RIP Albert - before the Championship Final I didn't think that he could run more than a few feet at a time (he was a "big unit" in modern parlance)

    Albert used to frequent Platt Bridge Labour club I think he lived in the Platt Bridge area.
    RIP Albert

    In the late 60's a couple of us were driving home after a couple of beers in Billinge when we got a flat tyre. Albert Halsall stopped to help us but us being teenagers we had no jack. He put his back to the front of the car and held it up while we changed the wheel. A real nice guy and strong as a horse.

    RIP.

    Sad news indeed, he was a Wigganer (Platt Bridge) through and through but loved the Saints. He was very fast for a bulky forward, he just seemed to glide over the ground. R.I.P. Albert, condolences to his family.

    What an ignorant man you are.
    The reason I asked was that a (sadly deceased) friend of mine from Platt Bridge used to talk about Halsall. I knew that he played at Salford initially but wondered if there was a Wigan connection.

    As I said RIP and sincere condolences to all his friends and family.

    very fast off the mark for a big man was albert, never ever took a backward step, it was at swinton the championship final, best game ever, the old lady with the umberella.

    I was at Station Road that day when he scored his hat trick... He was awesome against a very big Halifax pack.

    RIP Albert

    I went to the Station Road Final, what a hat trick and what a side step he had.

    Remember it well, that was Johnny Warlow's landlady, after someone tackled him!
    Fond memories of Albert, what a pack we had then.
