BIOGRAPHY

Dicky Rothwell by Alex Service

Richard Rothwell made 68 appearances in three seasons for Wigan, scoring 10 tries and kicking 28 goals before his transfer to St. Helens. A scrum-half who made his debut against Holbeck on 23rd January 1904, Richard made 16 appearances in his first season for the St.Helens club and scored a try and also kicked a goal. Universally known as Dicky, he worked in the Borough Councilís Cleansing Department. He also worked at a later date for the LMS Railway Company, where he was Foreman and Supervisor in the goods yard at Radcliffe.

He enjoyed a particularly successful campaign in 1904-05, when he made 16 appearances and scored five tries. Dicky does not appear for the First Team in 1905-06, made 3 appearances in 1906-07 and a solitary one in 1907-08. Whatever happened to him in rugby terms afterwards is unclear and we would welcome any further information. It is believed that Dicky died at Jericho Hospital, Bury, at the age of 65 on 3rd December 1939.
