Saints win in the final is reputed to have almost brought down a Lancaster bomber!!
Alex Linwoods cousin was at the controls of the aircraft when news of the win came through. He is alleged to have raised his arms in celebration, causing the bomber to fall several hundred feet before he regained control!!
