Biography of Tommy Leyland



HERITAGE NO : 524
Tommy was a local lad from a rugby playing family. He played 78 matches for the Saints between November 1941 and September 1948. A great signing from the Vine Tavern ARLFC He was a tough uncompromising second row forward. Tommy scored 17 tries in 17 different matches for the club. We have Tommy living in Lowe Street and Parr Street at different times of his life. He worked at Stoves as a Foundry Worker. Tommy died in Oldham in August 2002 aged 80.

At our Family Heritage Day in August 2019 his delightful descendants brought several items of interest, seen in the images below. They also told us that Tommy was still very much attached to his hometown, despite his Oldham connections. They reported that every Saturday morning Tommy would catch the bus from Oldham to St Helens to visit his old haunts.Dave Dooley
