Biography of Norman Thompson



HERITAGE NO : 479
Norman played 96 matches for the Saints from 1938 to 1946. He played mostly in the second row. Norman played for the Saints during the World War Two years and helped rebuild the side after that conflict was over. He scored four tries for the Saints in matches against Wigan, Barrow, Bradford Northern and Dewsbury. He was a hard running forward with a powerful hand off. The talent of Norman soon brought him representative recognition. Whilst at the Saints Norman proudly represented Lancashire in the county championship and a photo of Norman and the rest of his red rose team can be seen in his gallery.

Norman signed for Oldham after his days at Knowsley Road. He played 42 matches for the Roughyeds over the next two seasons scoring two tries.

Later on Norman also had spells with Dewsbury and Barrow. He made 31 appearances for the Shipbuilders in 1949-50, scoring 1 try.

Norman was a General Labourer and in 1939 he was living in Graham Street, St Helens. Norman became a hotelier in Blackpool and passed away in March 2002, aged 81.

Thanks to his grandson, Gary Calvert, for the career information and splendid images of Norman.
