    St Helens Town

    My memory of Hoghton Road dates back to the early 1990s when Runcorn RLFC, descendent of Liverpool City, played there before moving to Prescot Cables' ground and then going bust. If I remember correctly, the high point of their season in Sutton was when they held us (Carlisle) to a 12 - 12 draw there

    Well done BJL, good find. IIRC, both sides won on their opponents ground with St Helens winning the second leg 2-0 AET. Didn't they miss a penalty in the last minute of extra time?

    That's correct from Huddersfield.........A bunch of tall lads who towered over our players, I always remember. This is the away programme which I have. (Plus the home one of course)

    It is a shame how much they have gone down. At Hoghton Road, I must have watched them a couple of hundred times back in the day. The highlight was the Wembley tip for the VA Vase Final in 1987.

    Having said that, it looks like they have just avoided another scam.... https://www.pitchero.com/clubs/sthelenstownafc/news/club-statement-2310082.html Just cost then some time, but at least it seems they did some due diligence this time.
  14. it grieves me to see the demise of our local club, all thanks to them being conned out of the houghton road money in the ill fated move to knowsley road

  23. It was a nice property, it's been a carbuncle for years, all sorts of pipeworks and industrial crap at the back of it. Its been a big research lab for inspection and testing services for the metals and minerals industry for decades. Did you know about the bomb scare there years ago?
  24. Shame as it looks to be a really nice property. Suppose it will be 'new builds' there in no time

    St Helens Town

    I see St Helens Town got out of jail this morning. Bottom of the league, getting thrashed week in, week out, including an 0-8 home defeat recently and now the season has been cancelled and all records expunged from the records with no promotion or relegation. Couldn't see any way out of it for them - and then along came a virus.
  26. It wasn't just barbers that had a strop. My father shaved with a cut throat and used a strop to sharpen it. Men often shaved in the evening, hot water was more readily available then and it saved time in the morning. My mam probably appreciated the evening shave. Dad often looked like a notice board with bits of paper stuck to his face where he'd nicked himself. Strops were used in some households to punish children (could that be where stroppy comes from? ) No such use in my home.
