  1. Good explanation...this is the case when I last visited. Will not be going in until higher standards are re-introduced. There was never a need to shoot yourself in the barrel. Poor form Holts.
  2. Big thanks to Sir John Yates for supplying Jack Taylor Cox with his correct middle name and correct date of birth, 30 July 1925. Jack passed away in Warrington in February 2010.
  3. When Jack played for the Saints he lived at 50 Crawford Street, Clock Face, St Helens....jog any memories?
  4. Jack played a few games for the Saints just after WW2. He was signed from Clock Face Colliery. Interested to know if Jack is still going strong.  Research for Saints Heritage Society. He would be one of our oldest past players. http://www.saints.org.uk/saints/player.php?num=15123

  7. Well done Peter. I would also recommend "Bumper" by Larry Writer. A biography of Frank 'Bumper' Farrell, the Australian and Newton Jets infamous forward of the 1940s. He was also a policeman in the notorious Kings Cross/Darlinghurst areas of Sydney who maintained order in a not quite PC manner (forgive the pun). Simply a marvelous portayal of the 1940s.
  8. Last time I was in here (1990) it was populated by toothless ladies and rough chaps. The beer was virtually undrinkable. It's hard enough to keep a pub with all the positives in place.
  9. Yes you couldn't beat a spam butty with hard upturned corners.
  10. Of course I recall Cissy Cauldwell and her sons Linden and David. My uncle Frank (Dooley) used to have the Illegal bookmakers at the back of the house next to Jean's chippy and opposite my grandmothers shop. Betting shops became legal in 1961 which took a bit of the devilment out of the process. All the punters had psuedonyms in case their slips were intercpted by the law Red Roger, V et sl.
  11. Anybody remember visiting Santa Claus at Oxleys in the 1950s. Helena House also had its own version with a train carriage and moving scenery.
  12. Hi Jim I was at Grange Park 1961-68 and played rugby with those you mentioned in your post. The 'other' Jimmy Woodward went to Grange Park as well 1957-62. he lived in Gladstone Street. I recall the name Sam Woodward from my street, Doulton Street. Aqua
  13. They only let me out recently. St Helens did not move and Lancashire did not move therefore St Helens remained In Lancashire. QED
  14. Don't follow it - what is merseyside? St helens is surely in Lancashire. Sounds like another fancy job title. Power grabbers.
  15. Hi Jim, Silkstone Street off Boundary Road used to be called Cyril Street. Are you Peter's brother?
