BIOGRAPHY

James Atkinson by Alex Service

James Atkinson was signed from Chadderton. His actual place of origin is still uncertain, however, but it is believed to be Millom in Cumberland. He played 45 matches for the Saints over two seasons and was easily recognisable with his receding hair. James made his debut at the start of the 1906-07 campaign, against Swinton and was essentially a full-back, although he did fill in at left centre. The following year saw James play in both matches at Knowsley Road against the visiting 'All Golds' New Zealand team. Ironically, the full-back in the visiting team, Jum Turtill, eventually took over the full-back position for St. Helens. James left the club after the 1907-08 campaign and his progress then is unknown
