BIOGRAPHY

Dave Brown by Alex Service

Dave Brown was signed from Wigan Rugby Union Club and was the archetypal winger in terms of build, being five feet ten inches tall and twelve stones. He recorded a time of 9.9 seconds for the 100 yards, so he was certainly no slouch and held the try-scoring record for the Wigan Club, at one time scoring over 47 tries. Dave taught at St.Peterís School, Orrell and was a Lancashire county representative. He would have moved to Waterloo had he not signed for St.Helens. During his time at Knowsley Road he made 19 appearances and scored twelve tries. He was around at the time of two brilliant wingers at St.Helens, Les Jones and Roy Mathias, which limited his time at First Team level. Ironically, he came into the side at the last minute for the 1974 Club Championship clash with Warrington at Central Park, Wigan and did much to quell the effectiveness of Warrington winger John Bevan. Dave was later transferred to Leigh, to give him an increased chance of First Team football. He went on to play 30 matches for them, scoring 8 tries
