    1. Hi there. Ian Woolley was the Captain of the 1932 Toilers. I know as he is my grandfather. Just wanted to point out there are two misspellings of his last name in the photo captions above if you could kindly correct it.

      Thank you!

      1. Thanks for the corrections Laurie - they have been made above.


    We welcome your memories on this person or team and how they impacted the sport of basketball in Manitoba!
