BIOGRAPHY

A former Kendal Hornet, James went south to join Leigh, initially, where he made 58 appearances and scored 3 tries. This tough Cumbrian forward went on to play 15 matches for the Saints in the fledgling Northern Union competition between March 1896 and April 1897. He was a great friend and county companion of Billy Cross. Indeed the 1891 Census shows James visiting Billy on Census night at the Duke of Cambridge Hotel in Duke Street where Billy was the landlord. The History of Football in Kendal tells us that his nickname was Pasha and that he was a good forward who “found better pay with St. Helens; could handle the ball well and one who knew a few tips in scrummaging”. James was a joiner by trade. Our last reference for James finds his wife, Louisa and two sons living in Vincent Street, St Helens. Pasha died in St Helens in early 1908 at the age of 43 you help the SHS by supplying any other personal or playing details?
