BIOGRAPHY

Edward Higgins by Alex Service

Ned Higgins was a second row forward who, according to the Rugby League signing-on Registers, lived in Oxford Street in Widnes. He played against the visiting Australians in 1921-22 and made his Saints debut earlier in the season in the rather one-sided 3-38 loss to Huddersfield in a league match at Fartown. Overall, Edward played 39 matches for the club and scored a try. His last match was at home in the league against Swinton, when the Saints managed to pull off a creditable 6-5 victory.

Additional information and photo by Steve Fox, the Widnes historian.

Ned moved to the Saints from Widnes in 1921after playing only a few times for the Widnes first yeam. His brother, Tommy, was a stalwart for Widnes before moving to St Helens Recs.
