BIOGRAPHY

Eddie was a very fast winger who played 25 matches for the Saints during and after World War Two. He scored 12 tries for the club including a hat trick against York in 1948 and a brace of tries in a match opposing Barrow. He became a regular fixture at Knowsley Road and eventually became Saints 1st Team Coach.

Eddie was immersed in sport and competed in the Forces Olympics in Berlin in 1947. He was a pioneer behind the Swinton Running Club and the Belle Vue Racers. Eddie sadly passed away in November 2003, aged 77.
