Biography of Les Garner



HERITAGE NO : 408
Les Garner by Alex Service

A strongly-built and speedy forward, Les Garner came into the Saints team as the 1932 Championship squad was starting to break up in the early to mid 1930s. He lived in Reservoir Street in Thatto Heath when he played for the Saints, making his debut against Widnes on 26th August 1933, when the Saints won 29-14. The back three that day was Arkwright, Halfpenny and Garner, with Ellaby still around at Knowsley Road. In fact, Les was so quick that he was used on the wing on several occasions, where his pace and strength made him quite a force to be reckoned with.

No relation to winger Bill Garner, who also played in the mid to late 1930s, Les went to Wigan for a spell from February to April 1935 but returned to his home-town club and played First Team football well into the war years. This meant he had taken part in over 100 matches for the club. Les also played for Eddie Waring's 'boom' team Dewsbury, with Jim Sullivan during the war.

He went to live in Dentons Green and became an Assistant Manager at Pilkingtons Sheet Works. Les was also an excellent bowler and later became a gateman at Knowsley Road. He died in April 1960,aged 50.
