BIOGRAPHY

This local hard man was a Saints stalwart for the Saints between 1905 and 1919. In that time he played 254 matches for the club and a host of friendly fixtures. Butcher was very much a forward with a great try scoring record for the period.

His 66 tries for the Saints included five braces against Morecambe, Aberdare, Bramley, Swinton and Barrow. Butcher even landed a goal for the Saints.

Butcher even played one official match against Widnes for the club after World War One at the grand age of 36.

The coal miner from Silkstone Street is in the record books as one of the longest serving players for the club, a true testament to his fitness and commitment to the club.
