R: Stan Roberts
"He Broke the Hearts of the Yanks"
On 22nd July, 1929, on his 18th birthday Stan Roberts set sail for Quebec, Canada, on SS Montreal. His occupation was listed as farmer. Whilst there he began to not only pursue his interest in wrestling, but also get paid for it. We have uncovered matches of Stan wrestling in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, in 1931, and in Texas, USA at the beginning of 1932.
If anyone can help provide further information about Stan or Gwilym Roberts please contact the Roberts family c/o Wrestling Heritage.
