BIOGRAPHY

Michael broke into the Saints` first team at the end of the First World War. His speed found him a niche on the left wing. His first match was aginst Widnes in a friendly and this began a run of five matches at the conclusion of the 1918/19 season. His first touchdown for the Saints came in one of these friendlies against local rivals St Helens Recs.

The next campaign of 1919/20 saw Michael establish himself as a regular in the team. In 23 matches that season Michael scored well-taken tries against Swinton and Salford.

His last season, the 1920/21 campaign, at Knowsley Road consisted of five first team games. Michael crossed the line in a league victory over Widnes. His final match was a notorious one in Saints history. The New Year`s Day match against St Helens Recs saw the Saints go down by a record 39 points to nil! Following his departure from Knowsley Road, Michael signed for Warrington where a cartilage injury to his right knee finished his rugby playing days.

Michael died at his home in Gower Street, Sutton Oak, St Helens, on the 24th of July 1958.

Thanks to Michael`s son, Terry Hanley, for the interest and information.
