St Helens Town

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.

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)

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?

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
