BIOGRAPHY

Charles Creevey by Alex Service

Another member of the famous sporting family from the Pocket Nook district of St.Helens, Charlie Creevey was a powerful right wing threequarter who made his debut for the Saints on 7th September 1901 against Wigan at Knowsley Road, as a right centre. The 1903-04 season was particularly successful for Creevey, with 15 tries from 24 appearances in the red, amber and black jersey worn by the Saints at the time. Always capable of scoring tries, Charlie notched four in the defeat of Barrow on 19th December 1905 at Knowsley Road. He could also kick goals too.

After seven years in the St.Helens team, Charlie became a target for Wigan and signed for them on 21st January 1908. He scored 6 tries and kicked 11 goals in 14 appearances for the Riversiders before returning to Knowsley Road. As right centre to the great Tom Barton, Charlie had a superb season in 1909-10, scoring 10 tries in 28 appearances, with 17 goals for good measure. After that he was to play just one more match for the club before retirement. His brothers, Jimmy and Matt also played First Team for St.Helens, with Jimmy captaining the team for a spell. It is ironical that as a Wigan player, Charlie achieved county recognition that was denied him as a Saint.

Charlie later emigrated to the USA where he settled in Michigan and was employed as a bricklayer in a car factory in 1920. He died in Clawson, Oakland, Michigan in January 1967.
