BIOGRAPHY

Dave Markey by Alex Service

A forceful second row forward, local product Dave Markey made his debut in the First Team against Blackpool Borough on 12th September 1964. He was initially on the bench, with Peter Harvey for this game, which the Saints won 37-5. The game itself was characterised by a hat-trick from stand-off Keith Northey, together with a brace [and 5 goals] from scrum-half Alex Murphy.

A regular member of what was quite a strong A Team at Knowsley Road, Dave played for the seniors on seven occasions, with five more as substitute, scoring two tries. It was always extremely competitive for places in the back-row at the time of Dave’s arrival, with the likes of John Mantle, Ray French, John Warlow, Mervyn Hicks, Jimmy Mustrad and others all vying for a spot. Dave’s last match for the Saints was in the Floodlit trophy Preliminary round [second leg] against Salford at Knowsley Road. The Saints won comfortably by 40-5. He moved to Widnes, with Ray French, as part of the deal that took Frank Myler to Knowsley Road. Dave has kept his links with the St. Helens club and remains a staunch member of the Saints’ Past Players Association. It is quite true to say that he is also a popular and respected figure in the local community of Eccleston.
