|James Burns by Alex Service |
James signed for the Saints from the Wardley club and the Big Lanc as he was known was considered to be a fine prospect. In the St.Helens Newspaper in mid-August the talk is of Burns “recovering nicely after a severe illness,” and it was hoped he would be fit for the start of the season. The newly-formed Supporters Club actually donated £10 so that he could recuperate at the seaside or elsewhere.
His former team-mates Heath, Clarey, Shaw and Briers were the pall bearers at his funeral.
