BIOGRAPHY

David Taylor by Adrian Lawrenson

David Taylor joined the Saints on a six match trial agreement from Rochdale Hornets in the spring of 1971, making his debut in the European Championship match against St Gaudens at Knowsley Road on 5 June 1971, when he was right centre to Les Jones. After a Charity fixture in the Gallie Cup against Salford, David played in three Lancashire Cup ties, together with a televised Charity Shield game against Leigh. His last match was the Lancashire Cup semi-final defeat at home to Widnes on 17th August 1971, when he played on the left, with Dave Brown outside him.

He then returned to his parent club Rochdale and was later seen again at Knowsley Road as a Hornets player when they took on Saints in the final of the Floodlit Trophy on 14 December 1971. Saints won 8-2, but there is an interesting pen picture provided in the programme of David Taylor:

“Signed originally from Oldham junior team Fitton Hill, David had trials with the club at the start of this season [sic] has been with the club [Rochdale] since 1965 and is a motor mechanic in private life.”
