BIOGRAPHY

Jack Fearnley by Alex Service

Jack Fearnley was a superb second-row forward who played nearly 150 matches for the Saints. Unfortunately his rugby career was inevitably interrupted by the Second World War and but for that he could have made many more appearances for the red and whites. In the Practice Matches at the start of the 1934-35 campaign, the famous reporter Premier (Tom Reynolds) once again picked out young Fearnley as an embryo talent: A beautifully-built and alert young lad, Fearnley, at 17 years of age, shows form that may get him anywhere if he is tactfully coached. He takes the ball well, gives it well, runs speedily, has size and courage. Surely there is something there to work on.
Jack came into a Saints team struggling at the latter end of the 1930s with moderate playing personnel and seemingly ever-present debts. He was transferred to Broughton Rangers half-way through the 1945-46 season, who became Belle Vue Rangers shortly afterwards. Jack enjoyed a successful time with the Manchester club and actually worked for the leisure organisation at Belle Vue for a spell.
