A bumper crowd made their way down Moss Lane on Saturday to see a St Helens Legends side take on a Rest of the World Legends team made up from Union players from all around the globe. The game. Sponsored by Sherdley Park Golf Club and Univar Ltd, to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the St Helens Rugby Union Club (now LSH) raised over £1200 for St Helens Autism Support.
The St Helens side triumphed by 46-28 and featured a star studded back line with Paul Wellens, Lee Briers, Ade Gardner, Sean Long, Tommy Martyn and Martin Gleeson all in action. The still very useful Briers was voted Man of the Match after scoring a hat trick of tries, whilst Justin Holbrook excelled on the sidelines as Head Coach and waterboy.
LSH Chairman Tommy Jackson, who organised the day with former club captain Jan Lourens as well as both taking the field, was overwhelmed by the support both from all the players and spectators. “It has been a great day” he said. “I can’t thank all the lads from both League and Union enough for turning out, and the response from the people of St Helens has been brilliant. They saw a very decent game and at the end of the day have helped raise a sizeable sum for a very worthwhile cause.
LSH thanks all the many volunteers and helpers that made the game and the successful three day Beer and Gin Festival possible. It has been a great weekend for the Club.
As a reminder of what it is all about, in addition to raising money for a great cause - here are two photographs spanning the life of the St Helens Club itself. The first (1919) and last (1985) rugby union teams playing under the St Helens banner.
