BIOGRAPHY

Gary Ainsworth by Dave Dooley:

An inspirational `on-loan` signing from Leigh as replacement for injured hooker Graham Liptrot in March 1985, Gary became a vital cog in the Saints line-up in their quest for silverware. He scored Saints` first try in their Premiership Final success against Hull KR at Elland Road on 11th May and later toured New Zealand with the club before returning to Hilton Park for the 1985/86 campaign.

His utilitarian value was soon evident in Gary`s debut for the Saints. His vital try helped Saints secure a hard-earned 19 points apiece draw in the away league fixture at Halifax. Indeed his support play was exemplary for the remainder of the season with Ainsworth capitalising on his colleagues` breaks to end the campaign with a fantastic return of eight tries from 12 matches. This haul included a smart brace in the 42 points to 13 away drubbing of Workington Town. Gary Ainsworth a case of being in the right place at the right time!
