BIOGRAPHY

Solomon Cotton by Alex Service

This front-rower is the brother of Saints hooker Dave Cotton. Looking at the Rugby League Registers, both for a spell lived in Pottery Street in Wigan, which would confirm matters. Signed in September 1930, presumably to replace the retired Bill Clarey, Sol made his debut at home to Widnes on 29th August 1931, a stunning 39-2 victory for the Saints, which included three tries from Alf Ellaby. The front row that day was S.Cotton, D.Cotton and Ebor Hill. Sol played 16 matches for the club overall, his last a 0-10 defeat against Huddersfield on 23rd September 1933. He signed for Bradford Northern after that on 24th February 1934. Sol was a Colliery Hewer who was living in Cudworth Street, Wigan in 1939. He died in that town in March 1974, aged 67.
