Fred Roffey was a rugged Welsh second row forward for the club playing over 60 matches in the first great era for the Saints during the 1920s. He made his debut against Rochdale Hornets on the 31st, October 1925. In 63 matches for the Saints Fred scored 19 tries, kicked no goals for a total points aggregate of 57 points.

Although born in Wales Fred spent his youth in South Godstone, Surrey. He won every honour in the game with the `Riversiders over an illustrious career on the other side of Billinge Lump. After Fred had been in a pay dispute with Wigan, Roffey was signed from the old enemy in a bid to bring silverware to Knowsley Road. At 32 years of age and great experience in the game Fred was a born leader. He was the captain of the Saints side which defeated local rivals Recs to lift the Lancashire Cup by 10 points to two in the 1926 Lancashire Cup Final.

In a representative capacity Fred won caps for Wales whilst at the Saints.

His final match for the Club was against St Helens Recs on the 23rd. April 1927. Although he was in the twilight of his career, Fred Roffey was a vital ingredient in one the first great Saints sides. Fred subsequently retired from the game.
