Eddie was a very fast and powerful 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 in the early 1970s.

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.
