BIOGRAPHY


Austin featured for the Saints in seven matches during World War Two. He starred in a 12 points to 11 victory over Oldham on the 6th of March 1943 when this speedy winger netted a brace of tries.

His daughter Judy kindly submitted the following details about Austin. He was born at Windle-Smithies, St Helens on 11 September 1920. She thinks that he started the Second World War based at Burtonwood & then joined the RAF, training a Bomb aimer. After the war he joined the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company & worked as a cartographer; when he was invited to work in Persia [Iran] he left & joined the Metropolitan Police force. In 1948 he married my mother Emily Irene May. However he really wanted to become a teacher & to this end he returned to Lancashire, with my mother in 1950 & undertook his teacher training in Liverpool. After completing his teacher training he worked as a teacher in Kent before moving back to Torquay, Devon, where he been stationed with the RAF. He continued in his chosen career as a teacher. In due course he became a headmaster before retiring in 1980. He died age 73 on 2 October 1993. Many thanks to his daughter Judy for these details.Dave Dooley
