BIOGRAPHY

Signed from Liverpool City, Wilf O Mara played two matches for the Saints in March and April 1956. He was a hooker and both matches ended in victory for the Saints over Wigan and Whitehaven. Wilf was an experienced hooker and a regular for Liverpool City. He signed for the Saints in the twilight of his career. According to newspaper reports he was referred to as Expensive O Mara, a splendid nickname.

In 1939 we believe that Wilf was working as a Grocerís Apprentive in Fell Street, Haywood separates from his widowed mother who remIned in Wigan. Thanks to Chrissie Jennings, for information about her Granddad Wilf and the wonderful photograph.
