BIOGRAPHY

Frank Riley by Alex Service

A local lad, Frank Riley was a forceful second row forward, who made his debut against Leeds in the Wartime Emergency League in a 5-28 defeat at Knowsley Road. Frank was a key member in the immediate post war months and represented Lancashire against Yorkshire at Swinton on 10th April 1945, together with fellow Saint Norman Thompson.

Unfortunately, Frank was soon transferred to Warrington and played his last match against Rochdale Hornets at Knowsley Road, when Saints won comfortably 26-4. Brothers Jimmy and Tom Stott scored a try apiece and flying winger Sonny Doyle registered a double. Frank made 72 appearances for St. Helens scoring ten tries and he also kicked three goals.
