BIOGRAPHY

Peter Twist by Dave Dooley

Peter Twist was a skilful player for the club playing over 150 matches mostly as a centre. He made his debut for Saints on the 16th. October 1937 against Batley. Signed from St Helens RUFC, in 151 matches for the Saints Peter scored 55 tries, kicked no goals for a total points aggregate of 165 points.

His strike rate of 55 tries in 151 matches demonstrates the quality of his play. Amongst this impressive haul was a hat trick scored against Featherstone Rovers on the 11th of April, 1942 in the away leg of the first round of the Challenge Cup.

Peter played for the England RL team whilst at Knowsley Road.

His final match for the Club was against Dewsbury on the 18th. March 1944. He subsequently retired. Like so many fine players his career was blighted by the outbreak of the Second World War.

Outside rugby Peter was an Electrician and in 1939 he was living in Hall Street, St Helens. He eventually moved to Ormskirk where he died in December 1961, aged 46.
