There was more to the career of Charlie Collins, as Gary Slater, the Warrington Historian, has pointed out to us.

Your former player Charles Collins joined Warrington in January 1921 where he was known as Charlie Collins. He made his debut on January 15 1921 at home to Swinton. His last appearance came on December 9 1922 at home to Oldham. Charlie made 18 appearances but did not score any points. He did, however, help Warrington to win the Lancashire Cup for the first time, against Oldham at The Cliff in December 1921. Sadly, he could not play a full part in the final because he suffered a dislocated shoulder after about half an hour and had to leave the field, leaving Warrington to play with 12 men for 53 minutes.

Charlie was also involved in a coaching and training capacity with the famous Golden Lion amateur team from St Helens in the early 1930s.
