|Victor John Walsh by Alex Service |
A centre who made four appearances for the First Team, he lived, according to the Rugby League Registers in Oldfield Street when he first signed for the club on 23rd August 1932. It is presumed that Walsh was a centre in the A Team, because his senior appearances are over a reasonably long period. His first match was at left centre at home to Leeds on 21st January 1934, when his wing partner was the New Zealander Roy Hardgrave, who scored a try. The winger scored two in the next match, a 23-8 victory at Hull KR, with Walsh once again in the left centre berth.
Walsh’s last match was on 21st November 1936 when the Saints crashed 0-20 against Salford. The home threequarter line was Peter Smith, Walsh, Ossie Jones and Izzy Davies.
He died in December 1995, aged 82 and his death was registered in Knowsley. If anyone can provide any further information about this player, we would like to hear from you.
