BIOGRAPHY

Vinty learned his rugby trade at Lowe House school. He was a strong loose forward who played first team football at the end of the Second World War. Vinty scored a try on his debut against Castleford in September 1944. After his playing days were over he became trainer of the Pilkington Recs team in the 1950s. Vinty kept a close eye on the Saints from his dwelling in Knowsley Road and was a regular attendee at Past Players events.
