Video - 1953 & 1959 Cup Finals





PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO AUDIO ON EITHER OF THESE FILMS.

The first is the famous 1953 Lancashire Cup final, when Saints lifted the trophy for only the second time in their history, 16-8 in front of a huge 42,747 crowd at Station Road, Swinton.

This film is partly in colour and black and white a real trip down memory lane! Look out for Glyn Moses taking a bomb to score a crucial try. The last segment, showing the Saints in the dressing rooms with trophy is quite amazing - MATCH LINK .



Talking of colour and large crowds, the next film shows highlights of the Wigan-Saints clash on Good Friday 1959, which produced a record crowd of 47,747 for a league match between the clubs. The final score was 19-14 to the home team, playing in their Leeds-style home kit.

You will doubtless recognise several Saintsí stars. I wonder how many will be included in the 17 Greats? Once again our thanks to Graham Gerrard for the use of his archive - MATCH LINK .
