On this Day Book.
St Helens Rugby League Club 1873-2018 by Alex Service and Adrian Lawrenson.
London League Publications Ltd are pleased to announce the publication of On This Day – St Helens Rugby League Club 1873 to 2018 by Alex Service and Adrian Lawrenson.
This essential publication highlights key moments in the long history of St Helens Rugby League Club from a refreshingly different perspective. Memorable matches and a cavalcade of great players abound, naturally, with anecdotes aplenty. Original ‘Founding Fathers’ such as William Douglas Herman and Austin Cooper Carr rub shoulders with modern-day Super League greats like Mark Percival, James Roby and Ben Barba – a marvellous and intriguing juxtaposition of personalities. All have their unique places in the ever-evolving story of one of the most famous clubs in the XIII-a-side code.
Profusely illustrated and written by two stalwarts with over a century of Saints-watching experience between them, this is a joyous and eclectic celebration of 145 years of Saints rugby coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the County Borough of St Helens. Our team and our town marching on together. The way it should be!
