BIOGRAPHY

This extremely tough prop forward was signed from Leigh and such were his leadership qualities that he was a appointed captain of the Saints with immediate effect. Originally Stan came to Leigh from South Wales and went on to play 415 matches for the Leythers. In 1958 he won an international cap for Great Britain against France. Regarded as one of the hardest me to play the game, his durability is evidenced by the fact that his career spanned some 546 matches. He scored just one try for the Saints in the Western Divisional Championship game against Whitehaven. That proved to be a lucky competition for Stan as he lifted the Trophy after a famous 10 points to 7 Saints victory over Swinton in the Final. In no time at all Stan was on the transfer merry go round again and found himself playing for Rochdale Hornets. Stan Owen was a real character and off the field he was highly sociable with a wicked sense of humour. Stan lived the rest of his life in Leigh where he could often be spotted walking his dog or meeting old chums in the coffee bars. He died in Leigh in September 2019 at the age of 90.
