BIOGRAPHY

George W Parsons by Dave Dooley:
George Parsons was a stalwart for the club playing almost 300 matches mostly in the second row position. He made his debut against Rochdale Hornets on the 24th. January, 1948. George was born on the 21st January 1926 in Newbridge, Wales. George was a powerful, strong running and hard-tackling forward. In 296 matches for the Saints George scored 45 tries, kicked 40 goals for a total points aggregate of 215 points.

It was a spur of the moment decision which brought George Parsons; the best second-row forward playing in his day, to St, Helens. He had been personally approached by 22 clubs before a letter post-marked “St Helens” arrived one day. He had never heard of the place and had to look through an encyclopaedia to find out where St Helens was and what the town was like. At that time he was interested in turning professional. On receipt of a second letter he made an appointment to meet Club Officials, but forgot all about it until his father reminded him. It was almost reluctantly that he attended the interview, but the offer made was an attractive one, and he accepted. That marked the start of a new career for George; a career which made him one of the most Popular men in the Rugby League as weIl as one of its finest exponents.

Before that, though, he had enjoyed quite a measure of success in Welsh Rugby Union circles. Born at Newbridge, Monmouthshire, he spent nearly all his earlier life in Abertillery. He started playing rugby with the local secondary school, where he stayed until he was 18. In his last season, while awaiting call-up, he was captain of the school side. Parson`s success in the open can be attributed to the school sports master, who told him one day that he had fallen into the average forward`s trap of sticking, the ball under his arm, hunching his shoulders and charging ahead. To break him of this habit the young school master played George in the centre.

From the age of 16 George was playing two games of rugby every Saturday. He would play for his school in the morning and then travel 40 miles to play for Cardiff in the afternoon. All this experience packed into the youngster did him the world of good, for at 19 he was capped for Wales, the youngest ever Welsh International RU forward. He played four times for his country and gained seven caps for his county. George joined the Police Force from the Army but did not enjoy his new profession and tried to rejoin the khaki brigade. His superiors did not like it and he was even banned from leaving the country when the Welsh team was bound for France. Subsequently he was suspended from rugby union and did not play the game for some time. Eventually, he played for Abertillery before turning professional.

George spoke of a proud moment when he returned to Wales as a rugby league player.

When Saints and Huddersfield toured South Wales, I was appointed captain of the team when we played on our home ground. As I stood there and shook hands with the town clerk of Abertillery, I thought of all I had heard the townspeople say about Rugby League. Back home they do not think much of professional rugby and I felt proud and happy to be playing before them in a grand sporting game.

His first try for the Club was against Bustlingthorpe Vale in the first round of the Challenge Cup as Saints cruised to a 48 points to nil victory in the 1947/48 season. George was a member of the 1953 Lancashire Cup winning team that defeated Wigan by 16 points to 8. In the highly successful 1952/53 season George was on top form. In the 69 points to 17 humiliation of Wakefield Trinity, George scored a try and kicked 8 goals. In the Championship semi-final slaughter of Huddersfield George scored a unique hat trick of tries. One week later he was also a member of the Championship winning side against Halifax at the conclusion of the very successful 1952/53 season when the Club also won the Lancashire League title. His greatest feeling however must have been as a key member of the side that lifted the Challenge Cup for the first time as Saints defeated Halifax by 13 points to 2 in the 1956 Final.

As well as playing several times for Wales George also played for Great Britain in a non-test match.

His final match for the Club was in the 44 points to 3 demolition of Leeds on the 6th. of April, 1957. George continued his playing career with Rochdale Hornets following a transfer.
