BIOGRAPHY

Jimmy Lowe by Alex Service

Wigan-born, Jimmy Lowe joined the Saints on his demobilisation from the Forces. He had trials initially with Swinton and Leigh, but had also played as a guest for the powerful Dewsbury club during hostilities. Jimmy played his first match for the club against his home-town team in an A Team clash in February 1948. His First Team debut was against Oldham at the Watersheddings in the Second Round of the Challenge Cup shortly after. Saints lost a tough encounter 0-5 and several weeks later Jimmy was playing at Central Park against Wigan in front of 40,000 fans, although St.Helens also lost this game 11-22. Jimmy was a real stalwart at full-back, when the team was gradually building up its strength after the War. A county reserve, his competent defence and sure handling was seen at its best during 173 matches as a Saint. He played at Knowsley Road until half-way through the 1952-53 season, when new Coach Jim Sullivan brought in Welsh full-back Glyn Moses. Jimmy retired from the game shortly after. His contribution to the team during his time at St.Helens could not be faulted. His brother also played for Blackpool Borough for a spell.

In 1939 Jimmy was working as a Fitter and living in Ridyard Street, Wigan. He died in his hometown in September 1986, aged 62.
