BIOGRAPHY

Edward Ashcroft by Alex Service

Thatto Heath-born Ned Ashcroft was a forward who took part in the first Northern Union match played by the Saints, at home to Rochdale Hornets in 1895. He played for the club previously and won a medal when the club was promoted as Champions into the Lancashire First Division at the end of the 1893-94 season. The medal itself survives in pristine condition to this day. Ned did not play in the 1896-97 season for whatever reason, whether from injury or work commitments, but played later although spasmodically. A redoubtable forward, he was good friends on and off the field with his fellow Thatto Heathens Tom Foulkes and Billy Briers
