BIOGRAPHY

William Morgan by Alex Service

We do not have all that much information about this player, but it is believed that he started out at St. Helens Recreation in the later 1920s and early 1930s. At one point he was crossed off the register at City Road and the next we hear of him is when he signed for Saints at the start of the 1935-36 season. From the Rugby League Registers, his address is in Park Road, so it is presumed that he is a local product. He could play either scrum-half or stand-off and made his debut at 7 at Station Road, Swinton on 28th September 1935, when the Saints were on the end of a 3-46 hammering. Stan Powell was his half-back partner. His last match for the club in the First Team was at Broughton Rangers on 2nd January 1937, when he wore the 7 jersey, with Jackie Bradbury as his stand-off. Alas, the Saints were on the end of a 5-23 reversal. We have no information as to Williamís career after his last match. He died in January 2000, aged 88 and his death was registered in Knowsley. If anyone has any information, we would be glad to receive it.
