BIOGRAPHY

Thomas Crellin by Alex Service

By tradition the St.Helens club has always brought players down from the rugby hotbed of Cumbria and Thomas Crellin was no exception. A big, powerfully-built back-row forward, he played initially for Brookland Rovers and came down to Knowsley Road for one match during the 1909-10 season and impressed, although according to the local press he was “unfit for want of training.”
At 5ft 9ins and about 14 stones, he was just 20 years of age and it was hoped that he would do the club many years of good service. “He has been eagerly sought after by several of the leading Northern Union clubs but the bait of the Saints has proved most tempting,” wrote the St.Helens Newspaper. He made 31 appearances during his first season at Knowsley Road, at loose forward, yet only made one further appearance for the club, on 6th January 1912, at home to Wakefield Trinity, when the Saints lost 5-14. This would probably indicate an injury problem, although we cannot be sure. If anyone has any further information about him, we would like to hear from them.
