BIOGRAPHY

William Hough by Alex Service

William Hough could play in most positions in the forwards. He made his debut against Widnes on 31st August 1935 in the front row, with Bob Atkin and Dave Cotton beside him. His last match, against Broughton Rangers in the Lancashire Cup first round, at Knowsley Road on 11th September 1937 saw William in a loose forward role. Perhaps at his best in the second row, William made 37 appearances overall, scoring 3 tries. He also kicked 5 goals.

Although no details of his rugby career are forthcoming after his last match at Knowsley Road, It is extremely sad to relate that Flying Officer William Hough was killed in action on 16th July 1944, aged 29. A member of 44 Rhodesia Squadron, his name is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. There is no known grave. The Saints Heritage Society would like to acknowledge information provided by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s website for details of William Hough’s supreme sacrifice.
