Liverpool St.Helens FC: The Launch of the Heritage Exhibition
The Club Heritage travelling exhibition was officially launched on 8th February 2018 at Parr Library by Cllr Joe Pearson, Mayor of St.Helens, following a formal welcome by Bill Renshaw, St.Helens Central Library and Archive Manager.
Guests included representatives of all our support organizations and Lancashire County (RFU). Cowley International College was particularly well represented, its students working on examples from the Project Educational Resource Pack.
The day was rounded off by a personal rugby journey by club President Ray French, a former International in both Union and League, who coincidentally grew up in Parr.
The exhibition will now travel through libraries in Rainford, Chester Lane, Newton and Eccleston finishing in Liverpool Central Library in June 2018. Each venue will be the focus for rugby based educational activities for schoolchildren, as indicated above, and embracing around 25 schools in total.

WIDNES 27 LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 24
An extraordinary game with an extraordinary sequence of events produced an extraordinary finish somewhere around 90 minutes of time since the game started, and saw Liverpool St Helens, quite literally, give the game away to Widnes.
After turning in a poor performance in the first half and finding themselves 22-5 down at half time, LSH then looked like a different team in the second half as they clawed their way into the lead, 22-24 at what many observers thought was the very end of the game. Not so.
86 minutes had gone when Dave Cunliffe charged over for the try which equalled the scores at 22-22 but before his brother Matt could take the conversion, the referee awarded a penalty to Widnes and yellow carded the try scorer for foul play. Matt landed the conversion. 22-24.
Everyone then held their breath as the Widnes kicker planted the ball on the centre spot, took careful aim and boomed it the full distance. It drifted just wide of the left hand post. Many observers then thought this would be the end. Not so.
