Re: the mayor in jarrow park
Stan was a lovely man who rose above his physical disability (literally - when he stood upright on the longer of his two legs he was a lot taller than one would imagine when first meeting him) He certainly was a contender for the top NE player at one time, but I don't think he ever became a national champion. It's hard to be certain as Stan played EBF bowls mostly.
