BIOGRAPHY

Frank was a very talented player who could play anywhere for the Saints and he did. Frank played in all seven back positions and even donned the loose forward jersey. He had a rugby career which was blighted by the Second World War. Starting in the centres he went on to score 13 tries for the club including two braces against Barrow and Workington Town. Frank once scored a hat trick against Barrow in the Ward Cup. Can you help the SHS by supplying his photograph or any other personal or playing details?
