BIOGRAPHY

Arthur was a superb all round player who could play in the centres or at loose forward. He scored nine tries for the Saints in 97 matches and he was a brilliant defensive player. The local lad was around the club for nine years, well into the second world war. Arthur was a Coal Miner and like so many who toiled underground it did have a detrimental impact on his life. In 1939 the Census found Arthur in the Minersí Convalescent Home in Queens Drive, Blackpool. Arthur obviously recovered somewhat because he lived on to May 1989 when he died in St Helens at the age of 75.
