BIOGRAPHY

Tom White by SHS

The St.Helens Newspaper and Advertiser of 25/02/1927 carried this obituary of Tom White, who played for the Saints in the 1915 Challenge Cup final and scored the extra time try in the re-played semi-final against Rochdale Hornets that got the Saints there in the first place.

Death of Mr.T.White
Tragic Collapse in the Street

Much sympathy is expressed with the wife and relatives of Mr.Thomas White of Crab Street, who died with tragic suddenness yesterday. Mr.White was starting up his motorcycle in the street outside his place of business at Claughton Street, where he was the manager of Messrs. Avery’s Weights and Measures branch. He had what was believed to be a heart seizure and was removed home where he died shortly afterwards. He leaves a widow and one child. Mr.White was a man of considerable charm. He had the pleasant and good-humoured manner of the good sportsman, taking an optimistic view in everything. In his teens he developed into a very clever centre threequarter with the St.Helens Rugby Club and just before the War was their most promising centre. Against Rochdale, in the semi-final of the Rugby League Cup, he played a game that stamped him as a player of real tip top class. A knee injury put him out of the game for a long time and though he made an effort to come back in 1920, he had put on weight and could not regain his lost speed. He was, nevertheless, a popular figure and was well-liked by all who knew him. Gifted with a sweet tenor voice, he was ever-willing to use it in the service of any deserving cause. A good sportsman, a clean-living and thoroughly decent fellow, ‘Tom’ White will be much-missed.
