Biography of Jack Manchester



HERITAGE NO : 152
Jack Manchester was a local speedster who had honed his pace on the athletics tracks of Lancashire. He utilised this ability to full effect and it was no surprise when he crossed the line on his debut for the Saints. His career lasted 14 years across World War One and he established himself as a true trooper for the Saints. Indeed despite starting on the wing he finished his days playing virtually every pack position for the club. He scored a total of 38 tries for the club including a hat trick against Bramley. Jack even booted over a goal for the Saints. The Blacksmith`s Striker and Welder lived in Birchley Street, St Helens in 1911. In 1939 Jack lived in Thorne Road, St Helens. He died in September 1976 in St Helens at the grand old age of 92.

Dave Dooley

Jack lived close to the Knowsley Road ground and would watch the team regularly in their home fixtures. One of his last assignments was to be pictured in the red vee jersey before a special Veterans game held at the ground in 1972. This was for an Old Saints XIII against an International XIII, a night of celebration before the team bade farewell to their training Headquarters en route to the Challenge Cup final against Leeds at Wembley. Thanks to St Helens Library and Archive Services for this splendid image shown below.
