BIOGRAPHY

John Wills was a very versatile back who played for the Saints from November 1964 to May 1974. He played in the centres, on the wing and at full back during this time. A local lad, john possessed a great pair of hands, good passing game and solid defence. In 134 matches for the Saints he scored 34 tries including a hat trick in the away victory over Keighley on the 15th of January, 1972. John was unlucky when it came to finals football. In 1972 he played in the two Challenge Cup semi finals against Warrington but missed out on the Wembley final. In the same year he also played in the Championship semi final but again missed out on the Final. John carried on his career at Bradford Northern after his days at Knowsley Road.
