BIOGRAPHY


St Helens born, from Kirkland Street, George Parr was a strong, mobile forward, who began in the back row before moving to the prop-forward position later in his career. A former pupil at Rivington Road school, he made his debut on 23 October 1948, against Keighley at Lawkholme Lane and scored a try although Saints lost 10-12. Another local lad, Jack Grundy, was in the second row with him.

The man who stood guard outside Buckingham Palace whilst in the Irish Guards during World War Two became something of a stalwart in the early 1950s, with 128 matches to his name and 9 tries scored. He played in the 1953 Championship-winning team and in the Lancashire Cup victory against Wigan in 1953-54. George played his final match at Barrow on 18th April 1955 and subsequently went on to join them the following year before a final fling with Liverpool City. A glass worker by trade and a real gentleman to all who knew him, George passed away in October 2003, aged 78.
