Biography of Alan Prescott



HERITAGE NO : 679
Alan Prescott by Alex Service

Alan Prescott was an international rugby league icon, who gained the utmost respect from his on-field deeds and inspirational captaincy. In 1956, Alan was at the pinnacle of his career as captain of his club, county and also his country, the first forward to achieve this particular honour! The Challenge Cup Final was a Roses Battle royal between St. Helens and Halifax - two evenly matched sides. The game was typified by uncompromising tackling, as both sets of forwards vied for supremacy and there was no scoring in a deadlocked first half. After an hour of the match, Alan Prescott embarked upon a surging 50-yard run through the heart of the Halifax defence. Although his attempted pass to winger Carlton went into touch, it provided a hugepsychological boost for his team-mates and within minutes the Saints had taken the lead, courtesyof Frank Carlton’s scintillating touchdown. Just before the final whistle, Prescott took a gem of a pass from loose forward Vince Karalius to plunge over for a memorable try in the 13-2 success. Alan became the first Saints captain to lift the trophy and was awarded the Lance Todd Trophy into the bargain!

Born in Widnes in 1926, Alan was originally a winger, then loose forward, with Halifax, before becoming a Saint in 1948 for a £2,275 fee. Although he had already played county football as a number 13, he graduated to the front row quite early on in his career at Knowsley Road, on the advice of Trainer Peter Lyons. He soon settled into his new role, showing terrific mobility, good hands and was ruthlessly efficient in the tackle. Alan made his international debut against New Zealand in the series-clinching 20-19 victory at Swinton in the Second Test on 10 November 1951(the first to be televised) and was a permanent fixture in the British team for the next eight years!

The arrival of Coach Jim Sullivan galvanised his career at club level, as the Saints went onto lift the Championship in 1952/53 and the Lancashire Cup against Wigan the following year. Prescott skippered the side to their second title success in 1959, after a magnificent spectacle which included some magnificent open rugby in the clash with Hunslet at a packed Odsal Stadium. Although approaching the end of his playing career, he still showed great mobility and dynamism, at one stage backing up a searing Alex Murphy break in his own 25 and feeding Tom Van Vollenhoven out wide on the right for his hat-trick try, as the Yorkshiremen were blown away in a magnificent spell in the second half in Saints 44-22 victory. It is quite clear that with his inherent pace, Alan would have excelled in the modern-day Super League!

Yet the game for which Alan Prescott is remembered above all is the Second Test at the Brisbane Exhibition Ground on 5 July 1958, when an injury-ravaged Great Britain side overcame unbelievable odds to beat Australia 25-18 and keep the Ashes series alive. Prescott will always be remembered as the Captain Courageous who stayed on the field despite breaking his arm in the fourth minute. Stand-off Dave Bolton had to leave the field with a broken collarbone, yet Challinor, Karalius and Fraser managed to stay on, inspired by the courage of their captain. Twenty five years later, he recalled the incident vividly: `I tackled Rex Mossop, my arm struck his head and smashed. It went numb and I knew it was broken. I thought to myself ‘You can’t go off this Test Match has got to be won.’ I was wondering if I could do any permanent damage, when (Saints Coach) Jim Sullivan’s words came back to me – ‘if you are only on the field in the way, then someonehas to beat you. Always stand and face the opposition, never turn your back.’ These words, together with the looks on the player’s faces at Brisbane that day renewed my determination and I knew I had to stay on.`

The injury signalled the end of Alan’s remarkable 28 Test match career, including two Australian Tours (1954 and 1958) and one World Cup campaign (1957). He did not play again for six months, yet his heroic efforts at Brisbane paved the way for a record-breaking 40-17 success for the Lions in the Third Test decider in Sydney. At the end of the match, the team paid a fitting tribute to Prescott’s courage by carrying their injured skipper round the ground with the Ashes trophy.

Alan went on to coach St. Helens to glory in the 1961 Challenge Cup Final against Wigan but was replaced by Stan McCormick on 16 December 1961 and later coached Leigh for a spell. Although life was difficult for Alan after his playing days finished, he remained aninspirational figure for those who followed. A friendly and extremely articulate man, he passed away on 20 September 1998 aged 71 and the St. Helens Club named a banqueting suite at Knowsley Road in his honour twelve months later. His achievements for the Saints and Great Britain, especially his display of raw courage that day in Brisbane will never be forgotten! Needless to say he was an automatic choice when the St. Helens club named its Greatest 17 players in 2010.
