Biography of Frank Mooney



HERITAGE NO : 68
Frank Mooney by Alex Service

A tough local-born forward, born in Liverpool Road, St.Helens, Frank Mooney made his debut for the Saints at the start of the 1898-99 season against Widnes and in a career spanning ten years played in 182 matches, scoring 4 tries. His last match for the club was against Warrington in the Lancashire Cup on 7th November 1908 at Knowsley Road, which resulted in a 21-6 reversal for the home side. Frank was a great scrummager and played against the first New Zealand touring team, known as the All Golds at Knowsley Road on 30th October 1907. It was not a productive time for the Saints on the field, yet Frank had the distinction of playing with such fantastic footballers as Tom Barton, Billy Briers, Butcher Prescott, Jimmy Flanagan, Tom Foulkes and the like. For part of his career, the Saints were a yo-yo outfit, spending time in both divisions of the Northern Union.
Frank left the Knowsley Road club and joined Barrow just before the First World War began.

We are also grateful to Steve Massey who has provided some interesting additions to the Frank Mooney Story: 'Frank had a brother Pat and sisters Kate, Mary, Maggie (my Great Grandmother), Annie, Elizabeth, Mary and Nellie. Pat was step dad to Billy Feeley, who fought with the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War and whose name is remembered on a plaque in St.Helens Town Hall. Annie went to live at Alf Ellabys pub in Blackpool during the war and worked as a bar maid. Their cousin Ellen McCormick became Mayor of St.Helens and later received an award from none other than the Pope. My mum also tells me Frank used to go in The Feathers and The Red White and Blue. She also tells me he used to give her sixpence whenever he saw her! Frank served with the Border Regiment whose museum is in Carlisle. He must have enlisted whilst playing for Barrow but returned to St.Helens sometime after the War.'

In 1939 Frank was registered as a bricklayer's Labourer living in Crispin Street, St Helens. He died in his hometown in November 1959 at the age of 80.
