BIOGRAPHY

Andy Leathem by Alex Service

Signed from Crosfields in 1994, Andy made exceptional progress as a young front-rower, making his debut against Wakefield trinity on 2nd February 1995. The Saints were then coached by Eric Hughes and Andy did not look out of place, augmenting a front-row which included Adam Fogerty, Keiron Cunningham and Apollo Perelini. St.Helens won the match at a canter 56-14 and in those pre-Super League days, Andy was one of just two players on the interchange bench. Just over five thousand watched the game. The Saints team lined up as follows: Prescott, Hunte, Lyon, Loughlin, Elia, Martyn, Goulding, Fogerty, Cunningham, Perelini, Dwyer, Morley, Cooper. Subs Griffiths, Leathem. Atcheson, Chris Smith, Damien Smith, Newlove, Sullivan, Long, Goulding, Leathem, Hammond, O’Neill, Joynt, Davidson, Haigh. Subs: Pickavance, Busby, Goldspink, Anderson

Andy continued his Super League career at Warrington during the 1999 campaign and finished his career with a spell at Leigh.
Overall, Andy was a popular player at Knowsley Road and it is such a shame that injury blunted his career. He had a sure tackling technique, hence his nickname ‘Gripper’ and played a game in Australia for Saints after being bitten by a poisonous spider, but that’s another story!
