BIOGRAPHY

Bert Roberts was a very skilful and adaptable player who played 106 official matches for the Saints first team. In addition he played 31 matches in the War Emergency League which operated during World War One.

He was equally at home at full back, on the wing or in the centres. Bert scored 24 tries for the Saints including a hat trick against Runcorn. He also scored braces of tries against Oldham, Warrington and Barrow. Indeed he even stepped up to land goals in games against Wakefield and Rochdale Hornets.

He was one of the few in that era to play 100 matches for the Saints. The Coal Hewer had moved to Craghead, Durham by 1911, no doubt to work the coal mines in that region. He obviously returned to his own town to pursue his rugby career with the Saints by 1913. Bertís death is registered in Prescot in June 1933 at the age of 41.
