BIOGRAPHY

Jack Arkwright by Dave Dooley:
Jack Arkwright was a giant second row forward who represented Lancashire and went on the 1936 Great Britain tour of Australia and New Zealand as a Warrington player. Jack played 174 times for the Saints scoring 39 tries and kicking 21 goals for a total of 159 points.

Jack was signed from amateur side Sutton Commercial for 50. He made his debut for the club on the 8th of December, 1928 in the 14 points to eleven win at Oldham. His first try for the club came against Rochdale Hornets during a 23 points to 3 victory that same season. In his first two seasons he played most of the matches at prop. He was dropped for the 1930 RL Challenge Cup Final against Widnes having played only 2 out of the last 12 games of the season. Although bitterly disappointed he rode to Wembley on a motor-cycle to watch the Saints go down to Widnes by 10 points to 3.

In the 1930/31 season Jack secured a second row berth which was to become his most popular position for the club, eventually forming a devastating second row partnership with Ben Halfpenny. The 1931/32 season saw Jack at the top of his game running in ten tries during the campaign and running hard in the Championship Final against Huddersfield as Saints were crowned champions for the first time. The following season saw Jack notching a total of 22 tries. He was also a useful goalkicker, though George Lewis precision limited Jacks potential whilst at the club. In all Jack played 38 times as a prop for the club, 118 times in the second row and wore the number 13 jersey on 18 occasions.

Jack won England and Lancashire caps whilst at the Saints. Financial pressures caused Saints to sell their top players in the mid-thirties and the departurte of stars like Jack resulted in Saints free-falling down the league table. After his last match for the Saints in the 24 points to 18 victory over Rochdale Hornets in the first round of the Lancashire Cup on the 10th of September 1934 Jack was sold to Warrington for a world record fee for a forward of 800.

The Arkwright dynasty provided Jack his son who played briefly for the club in the 1960s and grandson Chris who captained the Saints side in the 1980s.

Jack has been inducted into the Saints Past Players Hall of Fame.
