Comment

Father of Bob Skilton

"R Skilton, rover and forward, is in his fourth year with the Fuchsias. 'Bobby' is popular with all and sundry, and is secretary to the players' trip. He is, like his pal, R.J.M., an ardent motor cyclist." (Record - Emerald Hill 22-Aug-1925 p2)

'R. H. Skilton, the second rover and forward, is very popular with all and sundry. 'Bob' never knows defeat, and his bull-dog tenacity always car ries him through. 'Bob' is secretary of the players' trip, and a 440 yards runner of class.' (Record- Emerald Hill) 3

SKILTON: 'Bob' is a flanker of the first water; and it takes a good man to beat him. He has several hobbies, viz., swimming, running, and playing the drums and singing in an orchestra. 'Bob' has been a player for about eight years, and is popular with all and sundry. (Record- Emerald Hill,1928)4
