BIOGRAPHY

William Prescott by Alex Service

It is a great achievement for any local born player to reach 150 matches for his hometown club and that is exactly what William Prescott did.

William was the elder brother of James Butcher Prescott, who played for Lancashire.

William also scored eight tries for the club, the most celebrated being at Barrow on 13 January 1906, when the Saints won 3-2. It is presumed that William just retired from the game at the end of the 1905-06 season, but this is not fully conclusive.

William was a coal miner who was living in Albion Street, St Helens in 1911. He died in St Helens in June 1938 at the age of 63.
